Obaro Sponsors Grootfontein Agricultural College

Obaro is the proud sponsor of the Grootfontein Agricultural College Merino Stud students’ clothing. The students launched an awareness campaign for cancer and Obaro was approached to become involved as a clothing sponsor.

Grootfontein Agricultural College is situated outside of Middelburg, in the Karoo, in the Eastern Cape. The Grootfontein Agricultural Developmental Institute provides a wide range of development, research, training and support services to the agricultural community in the extensive small stock production areas. Grootfontein Agricultural College has 7 mini-farm units where students can choose from their third year to receive training in the direction of their choice. The students also write a thesis at the end of the year based on their training.

The Grootfontein Agricultural College Merino Stud students launched an awareness campaign for cancer. Obaro sponsored their clothing, which they will wear during their various projects that they hold throughout the year.

“The youth has a huge impact on today’s agricultural development. Knowledge is entrusted to the youth so that they can also make an impact and leave their footprint on society. Obaro is proud to contribute to the empowerment of the youth because each small step in agriculture can make a big difference in the future,” says Nic Bronkhorst, Obaro Managing Director.
