The Grassroots Challenge

Over 80% of Nigerians live in the rural areas. Ironically the rural areas remain most deficient of amenities such as good roads, good educations, good water supply, good health care system etc. This instigates persistent rural-urban drift which consequently generates a myriad of socio-economy problems for both rural and urban centers.

Rural Entrepreneurship Development

Though the answer to the question how to develop entrepreneurship lies in the solutions of the problems faced in this regard, yet the following measures are suggested for developing entrepreneurship in the rural areas in the country:

Vox Populi

Do you need a political voice? No matter whether you are an ordinary citizen, development worker or politician, we can give you a voice for free. This is what you should do. :

Make a clear audio recording about a specific topic and send to Grassroots Radio. Recording must not exceed 15 minutes.
Tip: You don’t need a studio. Much can be achieved by recording with a good mobile phone microphone in a quiet room

Grassroots Voices

Your grassroots project certainly needs a voice. We can give you one free of charge. This is what you should do. :

Can Farmcrowdy Revolutionise Agriculture Finance?

Farmcrowdy is an agric-tech platform that gives Nigerians the opportunity to participate in Agriculture by connecting farm sponsors with real farmers for the purpose of producing high-quality farm produce. Their declared mandate is to empower rural farmers, contribute to food security in Nigeria and provide a healthy means of engaging people with Agriculture from a profit driven perspective.

Hydroponics Farming Step by Step Guide

With the world’s population nearing 7.5 billion – and global prosperity and the desire for more resource-intensive foods rising steeply too – it’s clear that farming needs to become more productive.

One way of meeting future food needs could be hydroponics – growing plants without soil, instead using a nutrient-rich solution to deliver water and minerals to their roots. It’s already being used to increase farming outputs and grow plants in habitats that wouldn’t normally sustain them.

Back To The Lands

Our agricultural enterprises development advice program titled BACK TO THE LANDS , a 30 minutes program which will run 4 times every day, seven days a week. The purpose of this programme is to present ideas and information on establishing new agricuture-based enterprises either at farm or processing level, to interested Nigerians all over the world.

Build An Aquaponics System

You can turn a small yard, a corner in a community garden or an unused space in your home into a thriving vertical farm for vegetables and fish. A household-sized vertical aquaponic system can fit into a 3ft by 5ft (1m x 2m) area and feed a family year-round. Sean Brady, the aquaponics projects coordinator at the Center for Sustainable Aquaponics and Nourish the Planet in Loveland, Colo., showed us how to build a system from scrap he found around the greenhouse.
