The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) is thrilled to announce that five South African youths have been selected to participate in the International School on Agriculture at the Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture (Esalq) – University of São Paulo, in Piracicaba, Brazil, from July 15th to 26th, 2024.

This prestigious annual program focuses on Tropical Biobased Production Systems, offering participants a comprehensive understanding of the technologies, economics, and environmental aspects of Brazilian agriculture, forestry, and livestock farming. The curriculum includes a blend of theoretical classes and technical visits.

In partnership with the University of São Paulo, the NYDA will send the third and final cohort to Brazil, bringing the total number of participants to 13. The primary aim of this initiative is to expose young South Africans to agricultural innovations in Brazil, equipping them with technical skills in tropical biobased production systems. This experience is designed to contribute to the holistic development of these youths, enhancing their educational and technical pursuits with certification credits.

Agriculture is crucial to the South African economy due to its potential for job creation, contribution to food security, and economic growth. The NYDA wishes the participants success as they embark on this valuable learning journey to Brazil.
