Nearly 80 per cent of Kenyans depend on managed farmland near bangalore or food processing for their livelihood. Nearly 80 percent!
Now even the Kenyan government has pulled up its socks and launched a series of agriculture-friendly policies and schemes to promote the sector like never before.
The corporates are also tying up with the leading learning and skills development companies to train Kenyans for different areas of agriculture through different training programs, such as agriculture sales training in Kenya, which improve the productivity of farm agents and see distributors.
The corporates are also promoting the agriculture training in Kenya as part to their corporate social responsibilities. With the support of learning and skill development companies, they are skilling the youth from the disadvantaged and economically weaker sections of the society and making them ready for the job market in the agriculture sector.
The CSR programs benefit corporates in two ways: they give back to the society by equipping the youth with employable skills, and second, they end-up creating a pool of talented people that they can use for their businesses, which is essentially linked to the agriculture.
Understanding the urgent need for skilled manpower in agriculture that is well familiar with the modern agricultural practices like production, processing and marketing, the leading corporate social responsibility companies or learning companies collaborate with the key stakeholders to provide highly relevant and thus effective training solutions to positively impact the entire value chain of the agricultural sector.
