70% of our global food requirement comes from the 500 million family farms around the world (FAO, 2014). And yet, family farming is often associated with poverty as these farms usually operate on small scales (mainly for subsistence) and generate low revenues. Thus, it is not a surprise that youth are not attracted to family farming.

Laikipia Rural Voices (LRV) emerged as the winner of the best blog for East Africa in the institutional category of the Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) in 2014. With over 400 articles, the blog has been instrumental in sharing knowledge from the field to the youth, and as a result, many young people have developed an interest in agriculture and are now actively engaged into farming.

Migration: a development journey...

My name is Grace Muinga, an agricultural economist by profession. I have a Bachelors and a Master’s degree in Agriculture Economics from Egerton University in Kenya and University of Reading, UK respectively. I hail from Kenya. I have a passion for improving the food security situation in developing countries as well as reducing uncertainty and risk in the agriculture environment so as to increase investments and improve decision making. I am also keen on improving livelihoods in Kenya as well as Africa.

“I Left Nigeria Once, I will Leave Again” - Many might wonder what I am talking about. But before I tell you where I left for and why, let me give you a brief background on my journey into Agriculture. As a young boy, I grew up around computers. From an early age I could handily clone, with my own hands and with no help, a desktop computer courtesy of learning from my father. Little wonder then, that I wanted to study to be an Electrical and Electronics Engineer. But as life would have it, I got admitted into the University to study Agricultural Engineering instead (A full 5 years of agriculture).

I come from a small village in France called "Toutlemonde"; it literally means "All the World" or "everybody". Not sure this drew my destiny but fact is that I am both representative of rural-urban migration and emigration.
