WHYFARM (We Help You-th FARM), introduces newly invented and creative approaches to reach out to the younger generation on the importance on the role they can play in Agriculture.

By 2050, the population is expected to be 9 billion people. We need new and creative approaches to reach out to the younger generation on the importance of the role they can play in Agriculture.

In 35 years time, 10 year olds (NOW) will be 45 years of age. They are the ones that Will be responsible for farming . There must be new approaches to ensure that they take up this task in order to ensure we are food secure.

WHYFARM is a not-for-profit organization based in Trinidad and Tobago, our organisation is aimed at promoting agriculture among youth by increasing their awareness of the world’s food problems and by doing so; grow the future feeders of 2050. This is done by transforming the negative perception associated with agriculture among communities, to children in particular, into a sector which is worthwhile through agri-edutainment (agricultural education and entertainment) to counter the challenges related to food security in our communities and worldwide.

Furthermore WHYFARM aims to equip young men and women with knowledge and skills to identify and recognize opportunities in the agricultural sector for self-sustenance and improved livelihood.
