A Korean non-governmental organisation, Korea International Co-operation Agency (Koica), will soon open an agricultural training centre in Seke communal lands to provide technical skills to farmers and students.
In an interview last week, Koica executive director Mr Hyeon Naesik said the training facility would help leverage the land reform programme by equipping beneficiaries with technical expertise.
He said students will attend classes free of charge, adding that the Ministry of Education, Sport, Arta and Culture would be involved in the formulation of the curriculum.
He said Koica founder Mr Jaeheung Cho, who is also in Zimbabwe, decided to set up the institute after realising the need to equip farmers with technical skills.
Mr Naesik said apart from the agriculture institute, Koica has also set up a pre-school to cater for the local community.
