On Friday, September 17, 2021, our team received a very warm welcome at our WP3 Lead Dr. Lydiah M. Waswa’s host campus of the Egerton University in Njoro. The Egerton University is the oldest Kenyan higher education institution, being established back in 1939. Today, Egerton University is one of the best universities in the country with growing partnerships around the world, which thrives to transform lives through quality education.
We are very grateful to Professor Bockline O. Bebe, Ag. Deputy Vice-Chancellor – Division of Research and Extension, to our fellow project team member Dr. Lydiah M. Waswa, and other Egerton members for this very warm welcome and inspiring and open discussions. We are looking very much forward to joining forces with you, conducting research, and educating future “Resilience Agents” for food and nutritional security, health and wellbeing in Kenya.
