CftC has teamed up with the Rural Area Development Agency (RADA), a subsidiary of the Ministry of Agriculture, to launch a pilot Fellowship Program. The first cohort of CftC Fellows will comprise of passionate developers, designers and entrepreneurs who will work alongside government partners to improve public services.
A Caribbean first, the pilot CftC Fellowship offers 3 part-time positions for a 6 month period. Fellows will work alongside RADA to explore inventive solutions for combating praedial larceny, one of the leading problems plaguing the Jamaican agricultural industry. By collaborating with stakeholders within and outside the Ministry, Fellows will build at least one application designed to address this problem area.
This pilot is fully-funded, and chosen Fellows will receive a stipend for their work.
