WACCI Alumni Spotlight: Highlighting the achievements of our alumni: Dr. Hortense Mafouasson Apala

We are constantly amazed by our alumni and how much they’ve achieved since graduating from WACCI. We’re happy to bring you #WACCIAlumniSpotlight highlighting the achievements of our alumni.

Congratulations to our fourth Spotlight alumna Dr. Hortense Mafouasson Apala. She was funded by the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) for her PhD and received a follow up to further his research after graduation giving him a platform to raise other bigger resources.

Dr. Hortense Mafouasson Apala graduated in 2015 and has since released 2 Maize varieties, authored 19 publications and attracted funds worth $ 600,000 USD from various donors to support his work.

We are proud of you! Keep up the good work!
