On Friday, we joined Copper Rose Zambia to host the Youth Summit themed “Digital Innovation for Youth in a Post Covid-19 World”. The event had a great turnout of young Zambians from all over the country and it is our hope that the youth in attendance were inspired to pursue digital careers and innovations as the world rebuilds.

Applications for the AICCRA Zambia Accelerator Grant are open until the 5th of December, 2021. Mentorship and grant opportunities are available for climate-smart small or medium-sized agribusiness in Zambia. Visit this website to learn more about this opportunity.
