YPARD is delighted to welcome Mohamed Sippo as YPARD Sierra Leone representative.
Mohamed shares with us his inspiration and what led him to work for youth in agricultures empowerment and to become YPARD representative.
When I worked with RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT a leading youth led Organization in Sierra Leone, I realized that youths are the solutions to problems and are not the problems as preserved by many people. Mohamed says. They are always at the fore front of development and change; therefore I had always loved working with youths.
When I completed my University study in Agriculture, I had this thought in mind how can I combine youth and Agriculture? I can proudly say that Young professionals platform for Agricultural Research for Development-YPARD is the answer.
Young people are innovative, creative passionate and hardworking. If only they are supported, they can bring a positive change in Agricultural Research for development.
I am proud to get involved with YPARD in order to trigger the change in Agricultural Research for Development in Sierra Leone.
Welcome, Mohamed! We trust that your background both in agriculture and youth empowerment, and your passion for combining the two, will make you a YPARD Champion in Sierra Leone!
