Hope Grammar School Ilesa students benefit from Lifechoice Foundation agricultural skills development initiative

As part of efforts to create awareness and increase youth participation in agriculture, Lifecchoice International, has trained students of Hope Grammar School, Ilesa, on the production of different agricultural commodities such as Cassava, maize and Vegetables.

Speaking during the training, Guest Speaker and Team Coordinator, Lifechoice Foundation, Professor Adeboye Omole, emphasised the need for students to engage in agricultural enterprises.

He noted that engaging in agricultural practice will enable them to be self-sufficient by being able to provide food for themselves, their family and Nigeria as a country. He said engaging in agriculture can also improve their financial lives as it is capable of bringing them reasonable amount of money if properly managed.


Professor Omole called on parents to encourage their children to make agricultural practice top priority as they will also benefit hugely from all the investment in it.

The highpoint of the event was the donation of improved varieties of maize, cassava and vegetables to the school. Over 200 Students participated in the programme.
