At the Agricultural Development Organization (ADO), we hold a steadfast belief in the potential of our youth to usher in a new era of agriculture. We recognize that with the right knowledge and tools, young minds have the power to revolutionize the agricultural landscape. Our mission is clear: to ignite student interest and awareness in the world of farming, paving the way for a promising and attractive career option, particularly among school-aged youth.
Empowering Tomorrow’s Agriculturists
To make this vision a reality, ADO actively supports school farms through financial donations for essential supplies. By equipping schools with the resources, they need, we are nurturing a generation of agriculturists who can harness their skills and passion to create a more sustainable future.
Our Commitment in Action
At ADO, we have taken significant steps to back our commitment to school farms. We have pledged substantial support by allocating $50,000 to fund programs in 21 public schools in New Providence and six family islands. This generous donation, presented to The Hon. Glenys Hanna-Martin, Minister of Education and Technical and Vocational Training in June 2023, underscores our unwavering dedication to enhancing agricultural education. The specific schools benefitting from this contribution will be disclosed soon, ensuring that our support is widespread and impactful.
Fostering Growth through Partnerships
In collaboration with Disney, ADO has embarked on five school farming initiatives. Four of these promising programs are thriving on the picturesque island of Eleuthera, while one is blossoming in the Abacos. Through this partnership, we’re not only sowing the seeds of knowledge but also cultivating a love for agriculture among students.
Together, we are empowering young minds, transforming school farms into vibrant hubs of learning, and cultivating a brighter, more sustainable future.
