How can TFF Ambassadors help improve the food system in your region?

TFF Ambassadors are the changemakers who will defy the status quo in the agri-value chain, lead meaningful youth-led projects & discussions to build resilience in local food systems through strategic regional collaborations. Above all, they will help drive actionable changes and demonstrate the potential for a robust food and agriculture industry across West Africa and beyond. 

Maame has been one of the most inspiring leaders in our community and she has that spark and empathy which convinces others to become changemakers too: “Becoming an entrepreneur is a step everyone can make, but the challenging part is to really achieve your dreams and not lose sight of them.”
