“I am happy to be part of this valuable initiative to enhance the participation of young people in agricultural research for development. I hope that I will be able to contribute alot of the learning I have gained from the Knowledge Sharing in Research Project to YPARD and its initiatives–and also inject new ideas into my work from  experiences I will gain with YPARD.  I hope also to develop closer links between YPARD and the CGIAR.”
