Working in an area hit hard by drought and creating awareness of new and different ways of farming is challenging. We may not change the whole world but one life, one day at a time – that’s really fulfilling. I look forward to 3 or 4 years down the line, to be able to track and see the kind of impact that we have had on people’s lives.
