UNYFA is an initiative of Uganda National Farmers’ Federation started in 2015 being an umbrella organization for all agro-based youths in Uganda.

It began operations in 2016 with the main objective of improving livelihoods of youths in Uganda through well established structures which foster building of a vibrant team of young farmers to fit into the national farmers’ union (UNFFE).
