Ambassador’s Report

As a new nominated GHI’s co-ambassador for Kenya working with Prof. Ruth Oniang’o and with the support from GHI programme director’s office, my immediate task would be to:

  • Write several articles on ‘seeds of gold’ a national magazine, co-produced by Egerton University about GHI.
  • Represent GHI in local conferences and all relevant organization sessions and offer presentations and distribute appropriate GHI materials.
  • Prepare and present a seminar on GHI to staff and students of the faculty of Agriculture of Egerton University to create awareness and illicit interest among the most qualified potential GHI ambassadors.
  • Review the GHI books particularly by offering an up to date review of the status of GHI within Kenya and the East African region.
  • Translate any GHI consensus documents into ‘Swahili’ language; a lingua franca among most countries in East Africa and parts of Central and western Africa for publication on GHI website.
