Ndagire Moreen Maria is a 23-year-old Ugandan currently pursuing her degree in Agricultural science and natural resource management at Earth University of Costa Rica. As the current CEO and founder of Pocia.agro, she has dedicated her efforts to working with rural farmers in Uganda through a committed team to help them better face the challenges of Agriculture in a rapidly changing world.
She is a YTT alumni and MasterCard scholar and even though very far from home, distance has not stopped any of her efforts as she has concerted efforts with a team in Uganda to establish a nonprofit organization, Pocia. agro, focused on helping Ugandans in agriculture move towards improvement and keen attention to the women and youths involved in the field.
Pocia. agro is basically a series of services offered to farmers in bid to ease and profit their input during the strenuous stages of rural production. The initiative prioritizes educating farmers about basic business management skills and opening and widening markets to encourage and foster high scales of consistent production which depends on the markets for its sales.
To her, making agriculture a steppingstone for economic emancipation, through technological innovation and youths' involvement is key in the foundation of socio- economically sustainable communities that ensure food security, for each individual.
In addition, she is also a founder of a youth charity group called IHAF and holds great interest in harnessing young people's potential through capacity building and mentorship so that they become cornerstones to building stronger communities. IHAF has managed to open the eyes of most young people to the importance of community give back and voluntary work to achieve common good of communities
