Empowerment

Field work - Agroforestry farming in Kenya

My bachelor thesis was based on a research about Agroforestry farming and empowerment of farmers. I wanted to se if an environmental project could improve farmers socio-economic situation which seemed to be the case for most people outside Kitale in Kenya. I spent two month in Kenya and got very familiar with its people and the culture.

I fell in love with the continent and would love to go back one day. Many challenges are facing Kenya but there’s also reasons to be optimistic.

Volunteering work in rural Nepal

My first year at my bachelor program ended with volunteer work in Nepal I organised myself. I lived with a local family in rural parts of Kathmandu, taught sponsored children english and was the project leader of one women’s- and one youth empowerment group. The trip was one of my first experience of poverty and one the biggest lessons about life.
