Mindanao youth to learn hands-on farm tourism and agribusiness

While sustainable farm tourism and agricultural livelihood are not usually synonymous with peace-building initiatives, the U.S. Embassy and AGREA are implementing a program that is effectively weaving those three themes: YSEALI GROW. 

Now in its third year, YSEALI GROW is a week-long leadership/agri-preneurship training that has so far enabled a total of 68 young leaders from Mindanao (18-25 years old) to recognize their potential. 

After the training and with seed money from the program, the participating youth leaders will implement agri-projects in their own communities in Mindanao. 

Within the framework of Haraya Manawari, “Dream and Make It Happen,” YSEALI GROW empowers out-of-school youth, young women, and representatives from Muslim and indigenous peoples to uplift their communities through agriculture. 

The Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) is U.S. government’s signature program to strengthen leadership development and networking in Southeast Asia. Through a variety of programs and engagements, including U.S. educational and cultural exchanges, regional exchanges, and seed funding, YSEALI seeks to build the leadership capabilities of youth in the region, strengthen ties between the United States and Southeast Asia, and nurture an ASEAN community. 

YSEALI focuses on critical topics identified by youth in the region: civic engagement, sustainable development, education and economic growth.

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it
