Twende Kazi is a Swahiri word which means “let us go to work”. It was established in 2016 and fully registered as a nonprofit entity to equip youth with knowledge and skills to identify and recognize opportunities in the agricultural sector for self-sustenance and improved livelihood.
In accordance with the Sustainable Development Goal 2 which;seeks to ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality by 2030,We empower the youth to overcome the challenges encountered in the agricultural sector industry by facilitating them to become proactive and dynamic leaders who advocate for improvement of agricultural production in their local communities to combat hunger, food security, and economic empowerment. Our agenda is to transform the negative perception associated with agriculture among communities, youth in particular into a sector which is worthwhile through training and re-branding of young existing farmers into skilled farmers and at the same time making it attractive to new entrants as a worthy investment to counter the challenges related to food security in our communities and world at large.
