Winess Nalungwe

Winess joined our staff team in July 2017 after completing a year of our Internship Programme. We had been on the look out for someone that could help to market and sell some of the produce we grow on the farm. Winess spends a lot of her time doing just that; making popcorn, roasting groundnuts, and making peanut butter. Any spare time she has we put to good use helping to teach the current interns, or translating for our trainings.
