I’m thankful to God who allowed me to pursue my MSc at KU and gain such tremendous knowledge in ISFM. I was able to teach at the National University of Rwanda (Faculty of Agriculture) and at the High Institute of Agriculture and Animal husbandry before joining the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in 2013. I will now be pursuing my PhD in Agroforestry at Wageningen University (The Netherlands). I appreciate the contribution of my lectures from ARM who have turned me into a fellow.
