Abdul Raufo Alfredo De Almeida

2021 Fellow from Mozambique

Abdul De Almeida has five years of professional experience in agriculture. Currently, Abdul is the founder and general manager of Crima's Agroforest, a company that helps smallholder farmers succeed through agroforestry. Abdul holds a degree in Forest Engineering from the Faculty of Agrarian Sciences at Lúrio University. After working for less than three years for the government of Mozambique, Abdul realized that he needed to do more for rural communities. For this reason, he founded his company and, one year later, founded the non-profit organization OARZA (Organização Agri-Rural) focused on rural development. Abdul is also a member of the selection committee for the U.S. Community Engagement Exchange Program. On completion of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, Abdul plans to continue helping smallholder farmers become active agents in environmental conservation by teaching them agroforestry practices.
