WACCI Alumni Spotlight: Highlighting the achievements of our alumni: Dr Some Koussao

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 third Spotlight alumnus Dr Some Koussao. He was funded by the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) for his PhD and received a follow up to further his research after graduation giving him a platform to raise other bigger resources.

Dr Koussao graduated in 2013 and has since released 14 Sweet Potato varieties, authored 33 publications and he attracted funds worth $ 1.1 million from various donors to support his work.


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