BSc in Agribusiness Management; MSc in Finance Control
I have worked in the NGO, Government and private sector for over a decade. My focus has primarily been: production, value addition, marketing and financial management.
My roles have varied over the years; from providing extension and advisory services, training and demonstrations, monitoring and evaluations, to planning and implementation of projects. I have managed a successful large scale seed multiplication programme overseeing more than 50 staff.
I have worked for CABI since 2015 during which time I have supported Plantwise activities in Uganda. Additionally, under CABI’s Good Seed Initiative project, I have contributed to the development of training materials for African Indigenous Vegetables (AIV).
As Projects’ Assistant, I support project managers with administration and logistics to ensure that other projects in the region function properly. I represent CABI at partner engagements, and provide overall administrative support for the Uganda office.
CABI has a regional centre for Africa in Nairobi. Agriculture is essential for sub-Saharan Africa’s economic growth and yet average crop yields in Africa are among the lowest in the world. Over 80% rely on it but many face challenges in growing sufficient good quality produce.
