He has four years of experience implementing, supporting, and working on donor-funded projects on a variety of institutional building initiatives, with focus on energy transition, climate change education, understanding, and mitigation.

In our neighborhood, numerous homes were flooded 18 years ago during an unusually wet season, resulting in the loss of life, destruction of property, and the relocation of numerous households. This occurred in June 2004, when I was only 10 years old and had just moved to the new community. It was extremely unusual for me at the time, especially given that my birthplace and the early years of my life were in a region where such events weren’t common; it is not unusual to still see similar occurrences today. My family farm, which practices subsistence agriculture, suffered post-harvest losses in 2020 due to a prolonged rainfall, causing us to lose about 15 tonnes of maize. This also had an impact on various semi-urban communities, including the one where my family currently resides.

More recently, I have seen many farmers unable to maintain their farms even during dry seasons, and this has significantly contributed to food scarcity in rural communities. I am aware of the impact that a changing environment has on human life, and this understanding has been my main motivation in looking for solutions and ideas to these issues.
