She set up the Pegama Farm, a rural learning and circular economy based trading hub in Makueni County, Kenya, after attending Danida Fellowship Centre’s learning course Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Value Chains.
Across every continent former and current Danida fellows drive development and effect change. They make important breakthroughs with innovative and progressive new ideas in a vast spectrum of sectors.
Danida Fellowship Centre is proud of all its alumni. We celebrate it with portrait articles featuring our remarkable former and current students.
