This is definately the way forward. I hope African goverments will whole heartedly embrace and pursue this venture by Fr. Nzamujo and snap out of our seemingly perpetual dependence on cheap foriegn imports and aids which has disempowered us.

Kudos to Fr. Nzamujo. This is really a wonderful endeavor. We can triumph over poverty and disease in Africa with good nutrition and education. Uju, Texas USA
