2012 Young Farmers Idea Contest-National Peace Corps Association Africa Rural Connect

Deadline- May 31, 2012
The 2012 Young Farmers Idea Contest (the “Contest”) is sponsored by the National Peace Corps Association .

Africa Rural Connect (“ARC” or the “Project”) is an experiment in global collaboration. We propose that you – the people who have lived and worked in rural sub-Saharan Africa – offer your perspective, expertise and creativity to generate action plans that will address the problems of farmers, who are mostly women, the rural poor and, more generally, the needs of rural communities in one of the most impoverished regions of the world.

In this Contest, people who care about rural poverty in sub-Saharan Africa and the importance of agricultural development as a path to a better future for youths are invited to submit, contribute, and comment on promising ideas, proposals and analyses, all of which may form action plans aimed at improving the livelihoods of millions of subsistence farmers, particularly youth and their families and their communities.

The ARC Platform is an attempt to reach and communicate more directly with Africa’s poorest populations and those who have lived and worked with them by directly addressing the problems the rural poor face and the solutions we, its extended community, can imagine for rural economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
