Titus's story

Titus is 43 years old and married with seven children. He earns his income through sale of crops, and profits from his fruits canteen. He grows coffee, maize, bananas, and cassava. He also has cows, goats, and chicken.

Titus looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone and solar charging) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village, helping them to improve their crop yields and increase their incomes.

With the additional money he will earn as a CKW, Titus will use it to pay school fees for his children and build a permanent house. His biggest dream in life is to become a political leader representing his community in the local council.
