This makes me truly believe in the work we do ever more. Our commitment and impact with the indigenous farmers is now recognised by Kofi Annan foundation, a leader we truly look up to. I look forward to connect with people who can enhance and shape my leadership skills. What a moment! Hello Geneva, Here I come.”
