On August 3rd, John traveled to Washington DC at the invitation of Niger’s Ambassador to the US to celebrate Niger’s Independence Day. The day featured a panel discussion among 8 NGO’s working to “Promote Women and Youth Empowerment in Niger.” John was joined by Robin Mednick, president of Pencils for Kids, our Canadian NGO partner.
Farmers of the Future fit perfectly with the conference theme and attendees were impressed with the bold vision of the project and the progress to date. We already have several requests for more information and possibilities for future cooperation. Stay tuned!
