The Youth Agro Environment Initiative, a non-governmental organisation based in Nairobi is training young people on modern farming technologies that can enable graduate but unemployed youth to earn a living.
One of the crops that they chose for this project is the arrowroot which has traditionally been grown near water bodies due to its high water consumption.

Start Smart, a provider of start-up support services, aims to close this growth gap through its innovative products and services.
