Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) scientists are honored by African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) Program and accepted into 2-year fellowship program.

An essential step in African development is strengthening the voice of Africa’s knowledgeable women, both on the farm and in the laboratories. In 2007 the CGIAR Gender & Diversity Program launched African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD). AWARD offers two-year fellowships to fast track the careers of African women delivering pro-poor research and development. The program is funded generously by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID. Three women from the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute at Njoro were nominated for the AWARD program: Ruth Wanyera, Anne Gichangi, and Esther Kimani, who wrote up their experiences.  Read more…

Hi,

Could I please have the contact information for Ruth Wanyera? I am an undergraduate engineering student at Brown University in Rhode Island, U.S., and I have been working on a project for the past two years to develop farming technologies for Kisumu, Kenya through the Kisumu-based Africa Center for Engineering Social Solutions (ACESS).

I am very interested in Wanyera’s work, and I would be very eager to travel to Kenya next summer and help her with her research and outreach.

If you have her contact information, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much.

Best,
Danielle
