Vicentia Agyapong Konamah

“Vicentia did not know about the programme until she came to the on-field team to make enquiries. After explaining what the programme was about, she was very excited and immediately called her mother to explain to her. Her mother asked to talk to me (Martin Kojotse) for more clarification and to ensure it was not a scam. Vicentia mentioned to me how she and her mother had been thinking and planning on getting a laptop for her for her academic work but was unable to because of how expensive they are on the market. Her mother could not send the money immediately. After 2 days she came back with her money and came for assistance to make payments. After she received her laptop and Mifi (connectivity device), she came to express her sincere gratitude for enabling her to enroll unto the programme. She promised to take the courses on the platform seriously and complete each one.”



AgriConnect Innovation and Difference

AgriConnect promises: 

  • That the technology deployed and the capacity built through the supplemental course content related to value chain development, digital literacy and entrepreneurship in the agricultural sector will drive the impact, scale and interest of youth, women, and differently-abled persons in the agriculture sector, and importantly bridge the digital divide. 

  • To address the urgent need to reduce the extent of labour under-utilisation among youth. 

  • To place focus on education and training to enable youth in agriculture to benefit from new and emerging opportunities in agriculture. The knowledge products that are being designed and disseminated through the devices will be innovative, culturally relevant, and fully aligned with the needs of the labour market and importantly capture the interest and imagination of youth in Ghana. 

  • That the activities and outputs of the Programme will in the near future support the modernization of the agriculture sector by boosting productivity and supporting the development of agribusiness, thereby creating the linkages between farms and plots and other economic activities such as manufacturing and agro-processing. 

  • To be innovative in its approach as the Programme is designed to bring scale and impact by allowing youth, women and differently-abled persons to align their educational qualifications in agribusiness, digital skills and value chain development with dignified and meaningful jobs that will allow them to maximise the potential of their entrepreneurial spirits towards improved and sustainable livelihoods.
