Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Sasakawa Global 2000 [2011年12月21日（Wed）]
Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Sasakawa Global 2000
I was in the capital of Mali, Bamako, on November 3 of last year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sasakawa Global 2000.
As some of you may know, that program was launched by the Sasakawa Africa Association to help overcome the problems of famine by assisting subsistent African farmers.
On its 25th anniversary, the program is stronger than ever, thanks to a number of new partners and donors. In particular we have been placing more emphasis on strengthening the value chain to connect small-scale farmers to the market.
If you would like to find out more about the past, present, and future of Sasakawa Global 2000 please head over to the Nippon Foundation website and read the transcript of my speech.
