Abstract

The study identified home/parental-related problems and possible solutions of home-based enterprises established and managed by vocational agriculture students. High school students in grades eleven and twelve were surveyed to determine their perceptions of the problems and possible solutions based on their personal experience with their respective home-based projects. Findings revealed that as many as 12 of the 19 problems were encountered. Unavailability of structures at home for projects was a major problem. All possible solutions suggested were generally agreed upon by respondents, including parental and the community assistance in the establishment and management of projects. Male and female students held similar views on problems and most solutions. It was concluded that limited resources impeded effective operation of projects. Parental and community expectations in the establishment and management of projects also needed to be clarified.
