"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my children may have peace", said Thomas Paine. What could I do for my country? For Africa? For future generations? These questions have haunted me since my adolescence. And now I'm starting to get some of the answers by using my skills in communication, knowledge management, and agricultural digitalization to serve the community. Indeed, I'm currently the CIKM Facilitator of Forum du Conseil Agricole de Madagascar (FCA), and also leading a project about the use of drones for development.
