Explorers in Africa

Follow Our Travels in Africa

As part of our Feeding The Planet initiative, we sent a team from The George Washington University abroad. Dr. Imani Cheers and two Planet Forward Explorer Fellows, Sara Snyder and Gabrielle Demczuk, traveled through Kenya and Tanzania looking for important stories and interesting people working in the food and agriculture space to get a firsthand view of what it's going to take to feed the planet.
