AGECO/CED 499A Introduction

The AGECO/CED 499A course is part of an initiative to develop viable economic and youth development options for a program for street children in Kenya. During the spring semester, students learned about cultural, economic and social conditions in Kenya. Various students teams built on this knowledge to identify and develop options for youth development and enterprise development, including agricultural production and value addition, culminating with on-site assessment and implementation in Kenya. Through this course, students and faculty partnered with staff and youth at the Children and Youth Empowerment Centre, Nyeri.
