In a world that keeps evolving with technology that continues to advance, agriculture remains an essential field that has yet to reach its full potential. It is at the backbone of our society, yet it is undergoing a global challenge. The ageing generation of our farmer populations are an urgent issue felt in every part of the world.
As of today, based on data from Indonesia’s Ministry of Agriculture, the total of Indonesian farmers is 33 million people – 70% of which are aged above 45 years old. Older farmers are dominating the number of total farmers in the country.
The Green School Foundation's Agricultural University Scholarships offer a unique agricultural education to Indonesian youth, particularly the children of farmers, instilling cutting-edge farming knowledge and practices.
