Who We Are
Yarn (formerly known as Youth for the Environment) is a registered youth-led NGO that is working 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.
