The gardening project was launched as a part of YEH activities to place more emphasis on the field, which directly relates to the achievement on Right to Food. In FY 2014, tomatoes and cassava were planted. After the harvest, vegetables will be sold to secure the funding for the independent management of the project.

Experts were invited as the panel at the National Conference, and the audience has learned the issues on the themes such as “Challenges to food security”, “Why engaging youth in Agriculture is needed?” and "Can Agricultural Entrepreneurship find the way to promote a future youth employment and drive poverty reduction?"

Through this activity, YEH will promote understanding of Right to Food and an importance of agriculture not only by YEH themselves but also by the local residents around the office in Abomey-Calavi city, and in Gbeto village as the area of activities.
