Social Entrepreneur Thione NIANG builds the Institute of Agriculture and Leadership. it brings together two major pillars of development: agriculture and leadership, through the creation of the Agriculture and Leadership Institute in Senegal. 

The Institute as an extension of the “JeufZone” farms is a glimmer of hope for young people looking for an opportunity to learn agriculture, trade, leadership in order to find a job or become a social entrepreneur. The main objective of the Institute is to support the economic development of the rural world, to help promote the agricultural sector, vector for food self-sufficiency in Africa, by providing a sustainable return-to-land platform for youth.

This is a private school that selects students on the basis of a process that leads to either a full scholarship or a paid option. This campus offers several levels of training. These include an intensive one-week training session for beginners, a 3-month session and a 6-month training session for advanced learning, and an “Invest in Africa” program for the diaspora. The full board accommodation of the learners who so wish allows them to have a climate of serenity. The programme covers all aspects of agriculture, such as seed selection, planting, harvesting, irrigation, natural pesticides, livestock, among others.
