Mwinyi Mwadadu – Peri-Urban Farming

Mwinyi Mwadadu got the idea of Peri-Urban Farming when he entered into town to acquire skills from KYEOP program. After seeing the city of Mombasa congested full of cars, he questioned why people there depended on those in faraway villages to travel to transport their farming products into the city for purchase. Mwinyi started to narrate this story to a friend, who after several months of asking others about access to farm products realized the nearest market was too far away.

Mwinyi joined hands with his friend and together they found a solution to increase the rate of sustainable farm products, that being to empower the youths to embrace peri-urban farming. This project will help youths embrace the idea to start their own farm and provide local products while learning about the business and agriculture sector.
