Kenya's Rice Harvest Exemplifies Success

The lowlands in Western Kenya have been transformed by government investments in agriculture and serves as a model to other nations. The farming provides year round work and a bountiful food supply to people once dependent on direct food aid. This week's U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization's summit in Rome will undoubtedly look to Kenya as successful model for agricultural reform. It is a powerful and self evident concept that there is more to gain by enabling the people of impoverished regions to feed themselves.
