The project promotes customised and cost-effective youth-led agricultural service models, strengthens the capacity of the youth in specific value chain services and promotes private extension. The project will increase the level of skills for aspiring extension agents in response to the growing demand for tailored services from farming communities.

This project is one of the 3 projects financed by AIRTEA  in Rwanda.
