NG of the month – Neumbe Rebecca Wagamala
Full Name: Neumbe Rebecca Wagamala
Show Society: Uganda Oilseed Producers and Processors Association
Occupation: Admin Secretary/Farmer mobilise
I came to be involved in NG when we received an email from RASC asking for a representative from our society who is 40yrs and below to attend the 24th Commonwealth Agricultural conference 2010 in Scotland. I applied and was successful, that’s when I came to know about NG
I believe NG is important to the Agricultural Industry because we are the leaders of tomorrow so have to participate in policy making and bring solutions that can been seen, offer young farmers a voice.
When in Brisbane, I will talk about the issues of market sourcing, networking and value addition. In my home country a farmer is not benefiting when it comes to market sourcing and value addition, it’s the middleman who eats big.
I am very grateful to RASC which has furthered the NG mission by the support offered during the mission especially as NGs from developing countries are always funded by RASC.
I believe the future for NG is bright. As NG delegates meet during the mission, the knowledge sharing and transfer of skills, especially from developed countries to developing countries, will strengthen Agriculture.
I am confident that NG delegates will continue to promote Agriculture worldwide thereby ensuring a bright future for our industry.
