It has organised a workshop to inform potential participants to its training programmes about how the project will be carried out.
The workshop was organised in partnership with the nonprofit association Burundi Business Incubator (BBIN) that develops entrepreneurship and general business skills in both established and new Burundian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and KCB bank.
From January 2017, Startup Africa will begin a training programme in Agribusiness. The training will take place in Ruziba area, south of Bujumbura. Recipients will attend short sessions in the classroom and spend much of their time in the NGO’s farm where they will learn farming. They will also learn marketing techniques for their projects.
Masumbuko said trainees will leave the training centre to go and do their own business partly with some money earned from the sale of the farm products. Trainees themselves will sell them as part of learning the marketing of their products. They will be rewarded according to their sale, “the more they sell the more they will receive”, said Masumbuko.
Africa Startup (Gambia) is a charitable foundation based in Norway with the mission to improve
livelihoods in The Gambia through education in agricultural innovation, environmental protection and entrepreneurship. At its inception in 2008, the focus was on infrastructure projects and business start-ups, encouraging and promoting an entrepreneurial spirit. As a result, the focus has moved to establishing MyFarm.
