worked as an intern at agricultural consultative forum (ACF) under research and policy section. Working under this section, I was exposed to different agricultural organization and this created so much diverse views about Zambia's agricultural sector. With ACF I participated in analysis and evaluation of various agricultural policies in line with how they affect Zambian agricultural sector. This includes the manner in which farming input distribution is handled and how it can be made efficient, an activity which led to development of electronic voucher system of distributing farming inputs to the peasant farmers which is yet to be implemented by the Zambian government. The production of policy briefs had a significant impact in building my strong analytical skills which are always desirable by any institution as it leads to efficiency in operations.
Worked as an enumerator in the conservation farming phase 2 research survey organized by the conservation farming unity (CFU) in conjunction with the independent management consultancy services (IMCS) during the monitoring of the progress and impact of conservation farming in Zambia. In these surveys, I perfected my skills in conservation farming as I practically evaluated the skills of the local farmers in conservation farming. The interaction with rural small scale farmers helped in building my strong understanding of the challenges that are hindering our small scale farmers from increasing their production.
