Free Leventis Foundation Agricultural Training 2019/2020 Session

Agriculture is a less-than-ideal occupation to many people, especially to graduates of higher institutions of learning, in Nigeria. Yet, it was reported earlier this year by Al-Jazeera that more than 55 percent of young people aged between 15 and 35 are without work. In the light of this, some of the discerning ones may see the free Leventis Foundation agricultural training as a good opportunity.

As maligned as agriculture appears to be, it surprising to learn that agriculture still remains the leading employer of labour in Nigeria. We have heard stories of how some people are doing well in different aspects of agriculture in the country. The government also seems to be interested in encouraging more people to go back to the land, judging by some of its policies.

The Leventis training, in my own opinion, could prove life-changing for some people who are willing to consider agriculture as a possible solution to their unemployment problem. Continue reading to find out if you are eligible and what you need to apply.

Leventis Foundation

About the Free Leventis Foundation Agricultural Training

According to Leventis Foundation, it has been organising agricultural training for young people and farmers since 1987. Its six schools are located in different ‘agro-ecological’ zones of the country. Precisely, they are in:

• Osun
• Kaduna
• Kano
• Gombe
• The Federal Capital Territory (FCT)

The Foundation says the training is sponsored by it, with financial assistance from ‘the respective State Governments.’ It aims to train young people in modern and sustainable agriculture, exposing them to different areas and available opportunities.

Applications are currently ongoing for the one-year free Leventis Foundation agricultural training. It has actually been on for weeks; I only just thought of sharing for those who are not aware and might be interested. Males and females can apply.

The Foundation takes care of tuition and boarding (accommodation), plus feeding, of selected candidates for the entire duration of the training, according to it.
