I am William Laswai(Tanzanian) who works to transform Tanzania communities through agriculture and fisheries.
I am lucky that I won the 2019 Cochran fellowship program in Washington USA.The fellowship covers everything except airfare(air ticket) so I am supposed to find donations for air ticket as my salary is very little to cover it and my organisation is not financial good to cover the amount that is approximately 2500USD airfare from Tanzania to Washington the Go and Return trip.
I am supposed to fly March 2019.
After completing the two weeks fellowship I will be In a position to help as many farmers and consumers in Tanzania to the emerging problem(post harvest loss) that makes a lot of food losses contributing to hunger in many parts of Tanzania hence food insecurity.
I am working at a tertiary education institution (government organisation) so i train students, farmers and consumers,i also conducting research and consultancy services.
With my monthly salary that 300 USD I will not be In a position to cover that air ticket costs.
With this platform I think my dream to change the post harvest practices of Tanzania societies will come true.
Please assist me on how I can raise 2500USD for my trip to and from Washington.
