Agriculture Crafted for Youth: A New Dawn

Co-Creating Jobs for Youth, Women & PWDs through Agriculture and Technologies:
The What, The Where, The How

About Event

What's the Event About?

Despite significant investments in youth-oriented agricultural programs and projects throughout Africa, Kenya continues to grapple with high youth unemployment rates, currently at a staggering 35%, translating to 4.5 million young individuals. This rate is considerably higher than the national unemployment average of 10%. Shockingly, over half of these unemployed youth are struggling to meet their basic food needs.

The primary objective of this event is to establish a robust foundation for cooperation and collaboration among stakeholders. This cooperation aims to revamp the development and execution of sustainable and impactful programs and projects within the agriculture sector, with a strong focus on job creation. Although there have been instances of successful programs that have positively affected the livelihoods of Kenyan youth, there remains a substantial gap in the design, planning, and implementation of these programs. The ultimate goal is to absorb as many young individuals as possible into the agricultural sector, which remains the most significant source of employment in Kenya.

Invitation to Participate


Dear Participant,

We hope this message finds you well. Happy New Year to you!

We are excited to extend a heartfelt invitation specifically to you to join the inaugural Agritech Kenya County Fair 2024, a pioneering initiative in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development led and officially convened by the State Department for Agriculture falling within Pillar 6 of the Department’s Comprehensive Framework for Increasing Food Production in Kenya, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Gender and Affirmative Action, the Ministry of ASALs, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection in partnership with key stakeholders in the “Jobs in Agriculture” space in Kenya.



Why Attend?

Simple. The AgriTech Kenya County Fair aims to go beyond just changing the ecosystem of how Jobs are created in Agriculture – it’s about providing the tools of trade to the Youth, Women and PWDs to be architects of their own success through engaging at different work points along 18 agriculture value chains in Kenya. It’s about the how’s of innovatively utilizing technology to bring solutions within the space of Agriculture for increased food and nutrition security for Kenya. We as stakeholders believe in the immense potential that a young innovative mind can bring in the space of agriculture; whether in direct farming, technology, art, digital engagement – all of our efforts will in the long run translate to a food secure nation where sustainable jobs are realized. Through collective efforts, we are on a journey of co-creating an additional 470,000 jobs per year along the agriculture value chains across 47 counties. Though ambitious, it is doable, taking recognition that Agriculture has the highest potential to absorb the highest number of unemployed youths in Kenya. It is not only doable, but achievable. We know the how, but we need your how. This is an outfit For Youth, By Youth, With Youth.
