Accelerating the End of Hunger and Malnutrition

‘We are not on track to realize Sustainable Development Goal 2, aiming to end hunger and malnutrition, by 2030.

My name is Lenah Mwangi, a youth social agri-preneur working with farmers in Njoro community in Nakuru County, Kenya to create sustainable solutions in addressing farming challenges while helping them transform into agri-preneurs by adopting modern farming technologies. I am the chairperson of Inuka Njoro Youth Group a self-help group comprising youths from Njoro who are venturing in agribusiness while seeking to impact the community through capacity building in sustainable agriculture. We have an interest in contributing to the achievement of #SDG2 which advocates for #ZeroHunger

I am also currently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Agribusiness Management at Egerton University through which I have gained diverse knowledge about contemporary principles of agribusiness management which revolve around Efficiency, Effectiveness and Economy-well-being approaches.

Simon Mwongela I'm also working on a sort of some model to organize 500+ Farmers. I would wish to learn and borrow more from you.

Lenah Mwangi Sure Simon, you can count on me. I admire your aspiration. Basically it starts with getting the farmers to form registered farmer groups and work towards a common objective.
