OPPORTUNITY FOR FISH FARMERS AND TECH PEOPLE!!!!

Applications are now open for the Youth-Enabled Fish Farming #AgriHack (http://yeffa.wennovationhub.org/ ) also known as AgriHack West. The application is open to ICT innovators, developers, fish farmers and fish farming enthusiasts who are based in Nigeria, Benin and Togo which are the 3 focus countries.
The competition is open to those who are interested in working towards solving any of the persistent problems of the fish value chain in these countries. And recently, there has been an explosion of fish farmers in Nigeria. So AgriHack West Africa 2016 aims to add value to the way fish is farmed in West Africa.
AgriHack West Africa 2016 is an ICT4Ag intervention project aimed at delivering commercially viable solutions to challenges resilient in the fish farming value chain in West Africa and also with a shared goal of building youth capacity in agricultural entrepreneurship as with previous editions.
So if you are a fish farmer, fish farmer ‘wannabe’, innovator or just interested in innovative measures deployed in agriculture in Nigeria and West Africa at large, the AgriHack West Africa is for you.
Build a team of not more than 3 members and head on to developing agriculture in Nigeria. According to the website, having a female member in the team is also an added bonus.
You are not only invited to showcase your skills and implement your disruptive idea but to build a solution capable of yielding a stream of revenue, create jobs and turn you and members of your team into fish farming entrepreneurs.
The countdown has already begun. To register and get more detailed information on the competition, head on to the AgriHack website(

YOU ARE THE BEST YOU CAN BE


                                                                        
                                      



A Crow was absolutely satisfied in life.
But one day he saw a Swan.
"This Swan is so white and I am so black", the Crow thought.
"This Swan must be the happiest bird in the world." He expressed his thoughts to the Swan.
“Actually,” the Swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a Parrot, which has two colors. I now think the Parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”
The Crow then approached the Parrot. The Parrot explained,
“I lived a very happy life—until I saw a Peacock. I have only two colors, but the Peacock has multiple colors.”
The Crow then visited a Peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him.
After the people had left, The Crow approached the Peacock.
"Dear Peacock, You are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet."
The Peacock replied, "I always thought that I was the most beautiful and the happiest bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the Crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a Crow, I could happily roam everywhere."

                                                       


Lesson!!!
We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We have forgotten that we are differently made for different purpose.
Value the things God has given you.
Learn the secret of being truly happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness.
Look in deep and appreciate what you have, develop it and channel it in a way that will help others.
Remember, "YOU ARE THE BEST YOU CAN BE"!!!!!!!!!!
