House of Maramuna, an initiative that has done exceptionally well in building capacities for school children between the ages of 8-16 years hosted her maiden edition of Kiddies Farm.
Kiddies Farm is a capacity building initiative aimed at inspiring children on the opportunities lying in the Nigerian agricultural sector and mini-master class in business academy.
Nigeria has been facing economic crisis due to lack of productivity in the agriculture and other sectors.
In line with goal 8 of the SDGs of promoting economic growth, kiddies Farm is a mini-business class targeted at children age 8-16 years who never believe they can develop business ideas even as kids.
Speaking on the Initiative, the founder, Amarachi Okpala-Onwuamaegbu stated that the initiative will teach Children how to pitch their ideas to investors, sell their ideas and business to potential customers.
In her words, “Every child needs to learn how to turn ideas into a business, write their business plan which is the core of any startup. Writing their business plan will help them own the business, know their unique selling point and their customers.
“Learning these business skills will help them set up a viable business.
