He continuously participate in outreach programs on tree planting and mentoring primary pupils at Taita Taveta County. My motivation of tree planting and mentoring pupils is the concern to take care of the mother- nature and encouraging the coming generation to work hard in their academics to fulfill their dreams. My passion for researching in agricultural field is to   provide a sustainable solutions and recommendations for increased food and nutrition security to the ever increasing population.  Patrick do believe that dynamic challenges in agriculture can be solved by the young generation through hard work, dedication, team work/partnership and passion to alleviate poverty and end hunger in our country and continent at large
