For two years, I faced my toughest challenges in this project in India. Working in a man’s world, dealing with cultural barriers, sexism, racism, managing 10+ stakeholders, all while trying to establish something incredibly special.
Today, I was finally able to celebrate my first milestone by opening this demonstration polyhouse to support trainings and demonstrations in closed cultivation to 10.000 local farmers. And also finally received the recognition and the understanding of all my struggles from the Dutch government, Indian government, international leading companies who are a part of the project and farmers.
This is only the first (small) milestone. But for now, I am taking in this moment and feeling incredibly grateful and happy. 🥰
