Yoruba Ko’ya Vision and Mission :

The vision of Yoruba Ko'ya is to be a lodestar for the social and economic liberation of Yoruba people in Agriculture and related fields. Our mission is to empower Yoruba people in Nigeria to achieve economic and social independence. We aim to inspire and empower Yorubas with an entrepreneurial spirit in Agriculture, Agro-processing, and Agro-marketing. We are a resource for funding, training, and marketing cooperative for farmers, agro-processors, marketers, and vocational members.

The Problem

Yorubas produce less than 50% of the food they consume.

Most of the processed foods we consume are imported, yet we have the capacity to do our own processing.

Yorubas have abandoned our food basket - the rural areas.

We can’t have a viable Yoruba region unless we are agriculturally and economically independent.

Yorubas have abandoned our food basket - the rural areas.

We have rich soil and can feed the whole of Nigeria if we apply our minds and resources to it..

Our youths are not encouraged to embrace agriculture as a viable profession.

Yorubas in Nigeria and the diaspora have the human resources and technological know-how to be leaders in almost any field of endeavour.

The Solution
