YALI Voices Podcast: Mystère Diksia on Agribusiness and Building Resilience in Communities

It’s not good to give money to people because they have a problem. Give money to people because they have an idea, a solution.”

-Mystère Diksia, 2018 Fellowship Alumnus, Chad

When a famine spread across his village in Chad, Mystère Belmamou Diksia knew his purpose in life was to eradicate hunger in his community. Graduating as a geological engineer, Diksia worked as a mud logging analyst for three years with an endgame in mind: save enough money to create ways to end poverty and create opportunities.

Learn more about how Mystère is creating jobs in his community to build the grassroots economy in Chad, and read the full transcript of the podcast.

Fellowship Alumni and selected candidates for 2021 who are interested in learning more about this topic are encouraged to take the Community Incubation Spaces: Effective Methods for Building Grassroots Economies course through the Fellowship Portal.  Learn more about the course.
