West Fermanagh YFC Welcome RYE
RYE had the privilege of being invited to a newly established Young Farmers Club located in Springfield a small village in County Fermanagh, where members were informed about the benefits of the RYE programme.
Delivered by RDC in partnership with Advantage, RYE is funded by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) under the Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation programme. It is an awareness raising and developmental enterprise programme for rural young people between the ages of 16 and 30.
Jayne Little from Springfield YFC had heard about RYE and contacted staff to deliver a talk to its members.
Speaking after the event Jayne Little said:
“I personally felt the talk was thought provoking and many of the young people in attendance were able to relate to the visual content of photos and videos which showcased workshops, business ideas and much more.”
Olga Gallagher, Director said;
“We were delighted when Jayne got in touch with us we feel community representatives are key advocates when it comes to engaging with the local community and raising awareness of opportunities. We would like to thank Jayne for her support and look forward to working with Springfield YFC in the future. We would ask rural community organisations interested in hosting an information event to contact us on 028 867 66980.”
