Since the creation of the first high school, 879 young people have graduated and 787 of them have been accompanied in their professional project. But beyond these figures, studies show that:
• The training develops young people’s technical and management skills and understanding of the socio-economic issues. It makes them want to become farmers by choice and not to become farmers by default. It enables them to make reasoned choices, to innovate, to implement and disseminate more efficient production techniques around them.
• Supporting young people after their training responds to their needs and enables them to overcome certain obstacles to the implementation of their professional project.
• The young people who have been trained become involved in their territory by sharing their skills to those around them; they contribute to the renewal of farmers leaders by getting involved in the FOs, in particular within the Fifata group.
Fekama is now recognized in the institutional landscape of agricultural and rural training, both nationally and internationally.
