About harrison kamau:

I have over six years of experience working closely with farmers across various organizations. I have served livestock farmers in two dairy organizations, i.e., Nyala Dairy Multipurpose Cooperative Society in Nyandarua and Laikipia Counties and Mwika Dairy Cooperative Society Limited in Moshi, Kilimanjaro Tanzania implementing the Dairy Value Chain. I also served as a Livestock Officer in an INGO called Child Fund Kenya in Makueni and Kajiado Counties, where I worked with a team to implement a project referred to as Agriculture, Dairy and Economic Development (ADED) aimed at enhancing the Moringa and Dairy Value Chains from production to marketing. Last but not least, I worked as an Agribusiness Technical Officer for the Worldbank-funded Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Project in Tana North Sub-County, Tana River County, where I led a team in developing and Implementing 350 proposals across four value chains, namely Maize, Greengrams, Improved Indigenous poultry, and Beef. I intend to use my professional knowledge and gained experience as a tool for development to better other people, society, and my employer, through advancement in knowledge and experience and willingness to share knowledge with others. I aspire to be honest, creative, responsible, resourceful, and loyal to the organization I am working for.
