Agri-preneurship Program for Young Farmers Conducted

active BINHI participants during workshop

With the ageing population of Filipino farmers, there is a need to harness the skills and competence of youth in agriculture for the next generation of farmers.

ATI-RTC 7 is conducting a new undertaking dubbed as Binhi ng Pag-Asa Program (Under the Young Farmers Program), which aims to promote “Agri-preneurship” among the youth giving them access to entrepreneurial skills and development in agriculture. The activity also aims to showcase and train new age agricultural technologies and methods; and provide supplies to the trained participants in the form of “agricultural start-up kit” which would allow them to grow their own crops (based on the local situation). Bohol and Cebu are the identified pilot provinces for Central Visayas.

Four Batches of Provincial TOTs for Binhi ng Pag-asa Program were conducted last June and July, 2017 with a total of 175 youth beneficiaries for the said activity from the Provinces of Bohol and Cebu.

The 4 -Day Training consists of 3 days for agricultural topics and the one day for Leadership and Values Formation.

what our clients say...

"On behalf of LAMAC-MPC we are very thankful to the ATI Management for Quality Oriented training, the venue was very appropriate for the training. The learning materials are very helpful in order to help our farmers. The LAMAC-MPC was very blessed to have attended this training because 50% of our members were farmers. We can help them through this training in the aspects of Food Safety, Economic, Quality Produce and Workers' Health. We hope this is not our last time time to attend in ATI-RTC 7's activities."
