Youth Earning a Living through Agriculture

I have been privileged to travel through Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya not on holiday working with different non-profit organizations working to promote the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) among the youth.

Organizations worthy of mentioning include ALIN-EA, Tanzania Telecentre network (a network of local telecenters sharing knowledge and experiences on improving their rural communities using ICTs) and a number of other here in Uganda. All of these organizations are keen on empowering the youth with ICT knowledge and tools to improve their well-being.

This blog is therefore an opportunity to highlight the numerous experiences that the youth who are especially engaged in farming are using ICTs to promote their own living standards and those of their families.
