Introduction
Youth agro-environmental Initiative is a non-political, non-profit organization, registered in Kenya by the ministry of Gender and Social Services .Youth agro-environmental Initiative recognizes the significance of agriculture in  food security, poverty reduction,economic growth, and long-term environment sustainability. Our organization therefore   promotes profitable agriculture and environment conservation for employment creation, income generation, food security,  and economic development in Kenya. Our operations mainly targets young energetic Kenyans who for a long time have been notably absent from agriculture activities.The future of our economy is in the hands of the young people. Agriculture industry without the young people's energy, innovation and passion is doomed. The current impacts of climate change have caught up with us, making climate change mitigation and adaptation essential  for sustainable development.Youth agro-environmental Initiative approaches also embraces multicultural and generational diversity. We strongly believe that people from both rural and urban settings of all ages, ethnicity,gender and abilities must be involved in creating better agriculture and environment conservation systems.Ours is therefore largely a campaign to bring the youth on board in agriculture and environment conservation for sustainable economic development in Kenya.

Purpose
Young people are the future of agriculture industry which is the steering wheel of our country's economy. Unemployment among the youth is rampant in Kenya as in many developing countries leading to increased poverty in the rural and urban areas alike.Yet 75% of Kenyan population is made up of young people below 30 years 0.33% of the population consists of young people 15-30 years. 56% of criminals are youth aged 24-25 years. Drug abuse among the young people has reached alarming proportions in the country. Currently, the youth make up 33% of the Kenyans infected with HIV/AIDS.Therefore involvement of young people in profitable agriculture is key to sustainability of the countries economy.
