Teaching agriculture at schools will fast-track the agricultural economy!
Agricultural schools play a pivotal role
in the development of the next generation of farmers.
SWASA and BKB partners with agricultural schools and the regional and local agricultural industries to address the skills shortage by preparing learners to participate in agriculture and to increase the employability of young people entering the sector.
