WHO WE ARE

Agro Tech Liberia is a youth based and focus nongovernmental organization that work with youth on climate change issues and food security promotion activities in Liberia. Founded on June 2, 2017, Agro Tech Liberia has been a leading voice for youth in agriculture, advocating for support to young famers as well as attracting youth to agriculture and agribusiness as a way to reduce youth unemployment and poverty.

Agro Tech serves also as a  public campaign based team of  young agriculture professional that seek to engage stakeholders( government, Farmers, consumers, students, NGO and others) to achieve the zero hunger and to protect the environment.

Agro Tech strongly holds the view that information communication technology can drive agriculture and agribusiness into attractive economic sphere where youth can find as economic comfort zones. 

OUR MOTIVATION

The world is currently occupied by over seven billions people. It is projected that by 2050, the population of the world will be 9.8 billion. In the wake of the growing population, the biggest challenge remains food security, follows by employment opportunity, a gap being created by the world growing population.  Youth in Africa constitute 19% of the global youth population in 2015, numbering 226 million. Africa has the fastest-growing and most youthful population in the world.

Over 40% are under the age of 15 and 20% are between the ages of 15 and 24. Looking at these statistics and projections, there should be an obvious reason why young people of Africa need to be attracted to agriscience and agribusiness in order to save the continent from food shortage and huge unemployment deficit. Agro Tech Liberia sees the zero hunger goal of the United Nations SDGs as a tangible road map to bridge the food security gap considering the targets identified in the goal. Protecting and promoting this goal, one must look at other related issue including climate change. Agro Tech stands as a campaign platform for zero hunger and climate actions.
