BSc. Agricultural Economics and Resource Management, University of Kabianga.
Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO), Socioeconomics and Policy development Section – Food Crops Research Centre (FCRC) Kabete
My placement at KALRO ignited a fresh passion for implementing the major lessons I had gained from a series of training sessions since this program began. My leadership skills were promptly brought to surface immediately after my orientation, where I was required to guide four university students who were on their industrial attachment. I was tasked with assigning them duties and ensuring they obtain practical experience. This opportunity provided a positive challenge that brought me up to speed with the operations at a department, which was already undergoing a shortage of staff. It goes without saying how timely my placement in the department was.
It is amazing how time flies so fast when there is a lot at hand to be delivered. In the policy development section, I had an opportunity to go for one-week fieldwork to carry out data collection from farmers practicing beekeeping. This gave me a glimpse into the policy development process which is extrapolated from the analysis of raw data from farmers. I am certain that I am obtaining the best of experience through GIPro to be able to initiate change in our country.
Our mission is to mobilize all Kenyans to stand up and be counted for the transformation of Kenya. We challenge each to take responsibility for their actions and not just point fingers or spectate when things are going wrong.
