One challenge I would like to address on a priority basis would be issues related to climate change. I would like to focus more on training and educating our farmers on the importance of climate change adaptation measures.

Youth comes with a fresh mind, have fresh ideas and are energetic. They can come up with new innovative ideas to support the older generation in the field. This is why organizations world-wide are appointing youth leaders to come up with a new vision.

As a youth, I think that agriculture can be made profitable if we can research more on maximizing productivity within the field. The same can be done by appointing more youth leaders to guide and motivate the farmers.

I want to establish a ‘Youth Council’ for children belonging to our farmers. I would like them to use this forum to express themselves and create new ideas & guide them on how to be Fairtrade farmers as it provides a secure future. Many farmers from our region are living a better life than before through Fairtrade, therefore, I would also like to see these teenagers develop themselves through agriculture and lead a good life.
