YEP period 2017 - 2019, batch 11
Currently I am responsible for executing a number of tasks. I spend about a third of my time developing the TAHMO business model. THAMO stands for Trans Africa Hydro Meteorological Observatory. It aims to set up over 20,000 stations across sub-Sahara Africa. In addition to this, I function as the local project coordinator for TU-Delft projects taking place in the area. As project coordinator I help write project proposals and help manage projects which have been selected. Last but not least, I help with the implementation and execution of tailor made trainings on entrepreneurship. For more information about TAHMO look here: www.tahmo.org
