Njeke Joshua, from Cameroon, grew up experiencing the worst days of hunger in a rural community and in an orphanage but He is presently the founder of the PEACE CROPs social venture since 2019. With an MSc in Agriculture and Rural development from the Pan African Institute of Development – West Africa, His inspiration to advocate for organic farming while also using agriculture empowerment workshops as a peace building tool have handed him the opportunity to work with war affected communities, orphanages, prisons, schools and other entities, across war affected communities in Africa. Since 2017, Njeke has personally experienced torture and witnessed His family members and friends kidnapped and murdered. All these did sparked up His desire the more to create a positive mindset shift in these civil unrest affected rural villages.
Njeke is also a Kanthari 2019 Alumni and His series of peaceful environmental conservation projects carried out give him an out-standing track record which is to be proud of as he is engaged in educating communities on the causes and effects of climate change both at local and global levels.
