Leventis Foundation Agricultural Training Program for Nigerians

The Leventis Foundation (Nigeria) is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching children and farmers contemporary and sustainable agriculture methods and resource management.

Since 1987, the Foundation has provided agricultural training to youths and farmers, and it now operates five schools throughout Nigeria’s various agro-ecological zones. Leventis Foundation and the respective state governments co-fund schools in the FCT, Osun, Kaduna, Kano, and Gombe states. All of the schools provide instruction to young people (both men and women) who want to pursue a career in farming or agribusiness. The one-year program introduces learners to all aspects of agriculture and other farm businesses.

The training’s goal, which is completely free of charge, is to develop generations of devoted young practical farmers in Nigeria who will act as a catalyst for an agricultural revolution in their communities. Both male and female candidates are eligible for admission.
