Amna Abdalla: "We create a better environment for African scientists"

"My plan was to go to Africa immediately after doing my PhD in 2016. But later I realized that  if I would go back to Africa at this time, I would not have been able to do what I was interested to do because there is a lot of challenging there. And now, working with NEF, we are trying to make the environment better for every African scientists to go back to Africa without any problem. Most of the people I know went back after their PhD and are facing a lot of problems. One or two years later they had to go back to Europe or US."
