Farming is in my genes, Blogger I am

Written by Thierry Lewyllie


I was raised in Kitale, Kenya’s breadbasket where I learned farming at first hand from my parents. I moved to Nairobi City when I was 18 for my studies but I still maintained a strong interest in farming. The experiences of growing up in Kitale inculcated in me a love for farming.

 

David Opio


As a child growing up in rural Uganda, David Opio experienced at first hand the difficulties faced by smallholder farmers. His mother owned an acre of land but was unable to farm it fully because she lacked the resources she needed to do so. Now David is an ambitious entrepreneur, with a passion for information and communication technologies (ICTs).  He is working to improve the livelihoods of rural farmers in Uganda.



Demandes de contacts, questions et remerciements sont de plus en plus nombreux sur mon blog « Les graines de l’info ». « J'ai lu votre papier sur la transformation de cacao en beurre par Monsieur Antoine. Je suis un Ivoirien, je voudrais faire comme lui. Peut-il me prendre en stage d'une semaine, ou me former à distance ? »,  écrit un internaute dans l’espace de mon blog réservé aux commentaires. Malheureusement pour lui, je n’ai pas retrouvé les coordonnées du producteur de cacao pour les lui transmettre.
