I discovered YPARD in November 2012 through CTA and Nawsheens blog. She says. I was very interested in this platform and this interest becomes greater. Indeed, I have always believed in the capacities of the youth. And we must recognize that youth competencies, positively developed in various fields, especially in agriculture can be very useful to our country to meet the challenge of unemployment and increase economic development.
With YPARD, we will achieve this idea of ??making agriculture one of the ways to eradicate unemployment in Senegal
Warm welcome, Rokhaya. Your bring to YPARD team a set of competences that will enable to solicit young people from your country to give their feedback, which is fundamental for them to get heard and considered.
