“The African Development Bank Group (AFDB) is a development finance institution which focuses on helping countries to reduce poverty in Africa. We have 5 major goals. We believe that when we achieve these goals, which we call the High 5s, Africa will grow to become a bigger and better place to live in. The High 5s are: Light up & Power Africa, Feed Africa, Industrialize Africa, Integrate Africa and improve the Living Conditions of the People of Africa.
Feeding Africa requires all of us to strengthen our effort in Agriculture. To do this , we need all hands on deck. We need to get more young people involved in farming. Young farmers are the future of Africa. Our rich Africa soil can produce all the food we need to put food on every table and sell the rest to make enough money to send everyone to School in order to get the other High 5s achieved. We need everyone to understand that farming is cool.
