People

“I chose MJBL because we share
the same mission. I want to
create job opportunities using
the agriculture industry
when I return home to Tanzania.”

Issa Abrahaman Kachenje
(MJBL Scholar, Tanzania)

“When I learn new things,
I want to share them with my mother
as soon as possible.
When I return home from Japan,
I want to teach all kinds of people
about strawberries.
I won’t mind sharing my experience
for free because I know not everyone
will have this opportunity.”

Shahansila Zimba Lama
(MJBL Apprentice, Nepal)
