About Yawe

Yawe began farming pineapples and bananas ten years ago to raise money for his school fees. Now a student in university, Yawe has perfected his technique, using maize and coffee hasks to create manure to promote the growth and sweetness of his crops. He trained and now employs 20 impoverished youth in his community to assist. Eight of the youth have since started their own farming projects to provide for their families.
