To all,

Today we drove to the capital, Bamako. We met with scientists and staff at ICRISAT, which is a research institution that works across western Africa. They said that they would be glad to assist with any agriculture projects. Anounou's wife works in one of the offices.

We also visited a very large "women's garden" project that has over 100 garden plots that can be used by poor women. Each plot has water available to it. It is a cooperative project with CTB, the Belgium Government.

We went to the school in Tamara (sp?) and evaluated the possibility of having a school garden.

It has been a very good trip. Anounou and the others have been great hosts.

I will include more detailed information in my report.
