April was a busy month with YPARD participation at the GCARD3 conference in Johannesburg. Nevertheless, it's never a dull moment for YPARD 10 years celebrations which continued with more gusto.
To begin with, a section of YPARD members at #GCARD3 had a little get together to reflect and celebrate the 10 years of YPARD. See Marina’s commentary on A network that grows proves the need for its existence
The informal meetup also gave way to a cake celebration experience where youth participants at #GCARD3 shared their personal YPARD moments. See more photos on Flickr.
And just when you think the youths are done, two South Africans at GCARD3 decided to release their single on the #YPARD10Years album. Listen to the song titled "YPARD 10 Years Celebrations Song" on YouTube.
#YPARD10years infographic and video
As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. In line with celebrating YPARD 10 years, we did an infographic, Empowering Youth in Agriculture; 10 years in review and a YPARD 10 Years celebration video (courtesy of YPARD Kosovo Hana Voca ) to help you understand at a glance the milestones we have achieved to date.
