resource to help vulnerable rural youth in Africa

November 29, 2007 - 6:42pm

NEW UN MANUAL LAUNCHED TO HELP VULNERABLE RURAL YOUTH IN AFRICA

To help children who are made ever more vulnerable by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and UN World Food Programme (WFP) has launched a new manual on how to establish farm schools to teach orphans crucial skills. The new manual advises on how to create a Junior Farmer Field and Life School to educate children on how to create sustainable livelihoods and long-term food security. The initiative aims to teach children practical skills such as local agricultural skills that may not have been passed down due to their parents’ deaths, but also how to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS and other diseases.
