IFAD Agrihub Nigeria

Training Application (food handling, processing and marketing)


The IFAD Agrihub Nigeria project focuses on developing the skills of unemployed Nigerian youth and aspiring agripreneurs to become self-employed or secure employment in agriculture. Through its various initiatives, the project aims to improve the livelihoods of youth in the rural economy. Agrihub intends to operate an inclusive model that provides opportunities for people with low levels of education.


To encourage young people’s interest in agriculture and its value chain, the IFAD Agrihub project, in partnership with Kokari Coconut, offers a solid curriculum in food handling, processing, and marketing.

The programme includes classroom teaching and hands-on learning. Through the training, the selected beneficiaries gain insights into becoming a brand co-owner and brand ambassador.
