Rural Advancement Fund of the National Sharecroppers Fund

RAF-NSFI continues to work with African American youth and farmers to regenerate farming as a way of life in South Carolina, aiming to interest young people in leading a life or developing a career in food and farming. In doing so, RAF-NSFI organizes a year-long, hands-on learning program involving 50 African American young people that includes field work, field visits and demonstrations, non-formal and formal learning opportunities, and meetings and discussions with African American farmers about growing culturally and historically relevant food that is healthy for people and good for the environment.
