Apply For $13 million Improve youth economic opportunities in the agrifood sectors For Nigeria & Tanzania


Application is currently going on for Mastercard Foundation's $13 Million program for improved youth economic opportunities in the agrifood sector, tenable in Nigeria and Tanzania.


    The Mastercard Foundation and Michigan State University partnered to help 15,000 young people access employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in the fast-growing horticulture, aquaculture, poultry, cassava and oilseed sectors in Tanzania and Nigeria.

  The project builds on the recommendations of Mastercard Foundation’s commissioned Agrifood Youth Employment and Engagement Study (AgYees).

AgYees found that economic opportunities for youth in sub-Saharan African agrifood systems are expanding due to increasing urbanization and rising consumer demand for fresh fruits, vegetables, high-quality proteins, semi-processed and ready-to-eat meals.msu.edu
