We are Start Them Early Program
“Our goal is to redirect the aspirations of the young youth towards careers in modern agriculture”
WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
We use an integrated training strategy that responds to the agribusiness needs of students, teachers and their communities. We transfer new technologies and modern techniques in agriculture to families, farmers, and communities, using the trained students and teachers. In most cases, this has translated into more employment opportunities, and improved food productivity and income, especially for families whose sources of livelihood were primarily farming.
STEP Addresses 7 of the Global SDG's
In 2012, the United Nations developed the renowned 17 sustainable development goals which were set with the sole purpose of meeting the urgent environmental, political and economic needs of countries of the world. Some of these goals blend closely with what STEP has set out to achieve in Africa.
