Staff Spotlight: Introducing Diana Onyango

Diana is a qualified veterinary doctor with over 20 years of experience working in the Horn of Africa. That’s why Farm Africa was delighted to welcome her on board to lead the Livestock for Livelihoods programme back in 2020. Since then, Dr Onyango has become one of Farm Africa’s key technical experts, providing support to teams across the organisation.

What does a typical day look like for you?

My work involves providing technical support to the project teams so I regularly hold regular meetings with them and work on various project documents and reports. I am also engaged in developing partner relations so I will also be holding meetings with various partners we are keen to collaborate with in various projects in the region.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

Learning new things and expanding my knowledge. My background and education is in livestock and rangeland management but since joining Farm Africa I have learnt a lot about agriculture, especially climate-smart agriculture practices.

What are your hopes for Farm Africa in the future?

I hope to see us expanding our work and increasing our projects so that we can engage with more communities in the region. With this, Farm Africa will continue contributing significantly to the development of sustainable and resilient agriculture and livestock production systems across eastern Africa, improving the lives of millions of smallholder farmers.

If you could share a message with Farm Africa supporters, what would it be?

I have a great appreciation for your support. Without you, we would not be able to achieve what Farm Africa has achieved over the years. Your continued support will allow us to reach many more farmers in Africa. I would also like to ask you to spread the word about Farm Africa’s great work so that we can join hands with more people and make lasting change together.
