Dear N2Africa colleagues, friends and supporters,

With deep regret we write to inform you that Jean-Marie Sanginga passed away. Jean-Marie was part of N2Africa from the very start and played a key role in all of our activities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We’re sure that all of you who had the privilege to meet Jean-Marie have your own thoughts and memories - he was an open, warmhearted, loyal and very trustworthy colleague. Despite all of the day-to-day challenges he encountered working in the dynamic, beautiful and unpredictable environment of Sud-Kivu, we could always rely on Jean-Marie to ensure that things happened and to deliver top quality work. He was truly committed to improving the lot of smallholder farmers through putting the very best agronomic technologies into their hands.

We will all miss him sorely and extend our sincere condolences to his family and close friends.

Stay safe and take care!

Kind regards,

Ken Giller & Bernard Vanlauwe
