Social entrepreneur Clara Kamlomo uses her horticultural skills in mushroom cultivation by harnessing the technology of social media to transfer the information far and wide. During this training, the trainer sends notes. Each topic is followed by illustration videos and photos of the trainer to help the trainee understand easily.
