This new project started in July 2017 and is sponsored by the Michigan State University under the Alliance for African Partnership (AAP) research awards. The objective of the YIELD project is to document new learnings about the success factors and challenges facing youth-led agri–enterprises in Ghana. The project will bring together promising young entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and subsequently build their capacity to scale up their operations, and serve as role models and catalysts for promoting entrepreneurship among other young Ghanaians and Africans. Three major outputs were completed by December 2017. We have mapped stakeholders and agri-preneurs in Ghana and conducted scoping interviews with them to conceptualize the youth in agriculture landscape. We also completed the development of a detailed data collection instrument in conjunction with the partners in Tanzania, the Sokoine University of Agriculture and MSU. We have also developed a communications strategy to give visibility to the project. This year 2018, we organised a convening for partners from the Sokoine Univ.of Agric and MSU in February. We also collected field data from both Tanzania and Ghana. With a consultant, designed training programs for monthly webinars which will run monthly. We also conducted interviews with top 15 entrepreneurs, developed a project website and held the final convening for the pilot project in Tanzania with participants from Ghana and the host country.The project ends in December 2018.
