“One thing I have noticed by working on Farmer-to-Farmer is that even though we may speak different languages and have different cultures, we speak the same language through agriculture. Most of the challenges to the farmers in Mali are very similar to my business problems as a cattle producer such as weather, access to financing, markets, and production constraints.” –Scott Stovall, volunteer in Mali
Scott traveled to Mali in 2012. Our volunteer activities in Mali were on hold for the last few months while the country was in distress, but we are glad to see that the situation has improved, and we can now resume activities in the stable parts of the country. It is a beautiful, lovely place, and we hope for nothing but peace moving forward.
