We are happy to welcome the new training year on our farm CPIA (Centre de Promotion des Initiatives Agricoles). Every year, 18 young farmers are trained to become agroentrepreneurs (AEs). The young people in their early twenties come from all over Togo to take part in the training.

On the farm, they learn about sustainable farming methods and how to deal with the effects of climate change in agriculture. The trainees attend practical and theoretical courses free of charge while they work and live on the farm. After the training, all trainees are provided with start-up capital to apply the knowledge they have learned on their own piece of land.
