Who we are

We Are A Youth-Led NGO

YARN is a collective of youth-led CSOs, growers and activists from different parts of the world that are leveraging agroecology principles to promote the right to healthy food, protect soil health, and align agrifood systems with the landscape restoration, conservation and climate adaptation agenda of their government and the global goal of sustainable development. YARN started in 2018 as a group of concerned young individuals, but is now a network of 20 active members in different parts of the world. Our coalition is a spread of actors across several food issues – health, inequality and social justice, environmental justice and community resilience.

We work with local farmers and indigenous communities to address food sovereignty challenges, conserve indigenous seeds, while mobilizing meaningful actions and policy reform.

We believe that education and capacity building can influence the willingness of people to become agents of change. YARN facilitates the transfer of knowledge and best practices on regenerative agriculture to local farmers.


We are providing a platform that brings together farmers, city representatives, food researchers, and seed organizations to strengthen trust and reawaken the culture of working together and building lasting relationships.


We showcase stories of young people that are working to ensure food sovereignty and ecological restoration across Africa to show that the engagement of young people in the changemaking space can meaningfully be beyond activism.


In our committed effort to enhance the adoption of sustainable farming practices among farmers, we provide support and organize incentive -based programmes for local farmers.
