Togo: Emmanuel Adebayor’s Foundation launches in agribusiness incubator

(Togo First) - In Togo, The Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor Foundation (SEA Foundation) recently launched its agribusiness incubators for young Togolese. The launch ceremony took place on November 18, in Lavié, 140 km from Lomé. The minister for grassroots development and youth employment, Myriam Dossou-d’Almeida, was present. 

The project, implemented by the football star’s foundation, aims to “create necessary conditions for promoting agricultural entrepreneurship to the youths.”

Concretely, with this project, the foundation plans to train 1,050 youths within three years. It (the project) has three components: training, building a pool of leading agripreneurs and supporting the creation of agribusinesses. 

The incubator is backed by the UNDP, as part of a partnership reached last October. 

Emmanuel Adebayor has on multiple occasions expressed his ambition to develop agriculture and tap into the sector’s potential for creating jobs for young people. Last April, for example, the ex-football player and the former advisor of Barack Obama, Thione Niang, evaluated the possibility to carry out a project similar to the one launched last week.
