Finishing off my degree in International Development and Business, I have the honour of working alongside a local organization based in Lilongwe, Malawi called Associated Centre for Agro-based Development and Entrepreneurial Support (ACADES).
Agriculture is one of the main sectors in Malawi with the potential for growth. Additionally, youth in Malawi represent the largest percentage of the population yet have the highest rate of unemployment. ACADES focuses on engaging youth (ages 15 to 35) in agriculture through a membership-based approach.
My market research mandate focuses on evaluating the agricultural value chain in the Central Region to identify the most profitable crops and livestock (common and uncommon) for youth to invest in.
