Youth Ambassador for Jobs in Agriculture Award – Kenya

Youth Ambassador for Jobs in Agriculture Award 


Welcome to the prestigious Youth Ambassador for Jobs in Agriculture Award (YAJA-K Award) at the AgriTech County Fair 2024! This annual award celebrates and recognizes outstanding youth advocates who actively contribute to the advancement of jobs in agriculture. It’s here! Its Big! Its Amazing! The “Youth Ambassador for Jobs in Agriculture Award 2024” comes to Kenya for the very first time!

For over 5 decades now, the story has almost been the same…” Youth do not find agriculture lucrative hence find it a not-so-attractive affair to dwell in” …How true is this? Is that where the story begins…or is this where the story ends! Is this a fact or a fallacy? All in all …time is now!
Reality has it that hundreds of youth have indulged in agriculture and have found themselves not only building a livelihood for themselves but have literally employed their peers to make a livelihood from what they have built from scratch. It is youth like this that inspire other youth and those young-at-heart, like you and I, to come to the realization that there is more than what is said of youth employment in agriculture. It is a business for many, a livelihood, a way of life.

The YAJA-K Award is a “Symbol of Distinction” bestowed upon two exceptional youth advocates during the AgriTech County Fair. These advocates demonstrate a profound commitment to promoting jobs in agriculture along key value chains, fostering innovation, embracing technology, and driving positive change within the agricultural sector at county and national level. 

The YAJA-K Award is an annual award devised by the Agritech Kenya County Fair and like-minded stakeholders in the job creation space with a focus on agriculture. The team came together and realized the need to not only appreciate outstanding youth that have dedicated their career lives in advocating for engagement of youth in agriculture but have gone ahead to mobilize resources to impact as many youth as possible into sustainable and dignified employment in agriculture through the Agritech Kenya County Fair Outfit; a move that will impact generations to come through this noble initiative that seeks to create jobs for youth.
