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 am from a small rural community located in the southern part of the beautiful island, Trinidad. After completing my degree I moved back home but inadequate job opportunities in my field of study, inept mentorship programs and limited leisure activities at that time lead me to move to an urban community. Even though the rural communities were major providers of agricultural produce with the divestment of Caroni (1975) Limited the number of farmers and farming communities slowly dwindled.

Migrating ; what for?

According to the UN - Youths are seen as one of the most mobile social groups in migration context. They make up about 30% of international migrants. Migration could arise as a result of tranfer or a change in job, education or an entire family or individual relocating abroad for "greener pastures". Some could also be within a particular country for reasons such as insecurity, job availability, weather, marriage to mention but a few.

The commonest form of migration is from rural to urban areas. Most young people move to urban areas, towns and cities due to a number of reasons. The location of industries, better infrastructures, better employment opportunities, jobs and lifestyles among others explain this phenomenon.

“The location of businesses, organizations and government ministries in towns and cities is what drives the youth out of rural areas leaving agriculture to the old and frail” Says Aidah Agwang. Ms Agwang is a Communications Officer at Childsifoundation in Uganda, an organization that protects the rights, nurtures and provides opportunities for positive growth and development for children.
