We’re re-inspiring youth towards a Culture of Agriculture, encouraging healthy and sustainable lifestyles, and supporting food security! You can be an AgroViva Hero too. It’s super easy, and a whole lot of fun!
AgroViva is a collaborative initiative that directly supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 – Zero Hunger and SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-Being.
Eighty (80) local and migrant youth participants from all our programmes and our Heroes team are all showing off their gardening skills and being true AgroViva Heroes.
They’re growing their own food and making healthy eating choices to build healthy lifestyles.
You can join the fun and be an AgroiViva Hero using the gardening videos below. Check them out, and check our social media platforms for updates from our AgroVova Heroes.
This initiative was made possible by the Pan-American Development Foundation (PADF) with funding from the United States Government, The Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago through The Ministry of Agriculture, Land, and Fisheries, and WhyFarm, with educational videos courtesy the Grow Garden Initiative from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), AgriMan, the World Food Programme, and the Global Environment Fund’s Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP)

For World Social Work Day, we recognise and celebrate the work of these heroes who dedicate their lives to helping others. This year’s theme is Ubuntu – “I am, because you are.” In this mini-series, we explore how this type of love and commitment positively transforms lives.
Case Officers at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Trinidad and Tobago (BBBSTT) are all social workers, because of the core skills and tools they possess to help guide and support healthy mentorship relationships. They work closely with other Social Workers and Guidance Councillors at schools and Community Residences to ensure that young people benefit from the opportunities available to them.
We are grateful for their dedication and support of youth development through mentorship. Heroes is proud to be the host organisation for BBBSTT, an official affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters International.
