Rising to the Challenge
Ruth Kagia Education Director
IWGE Meeting Rome June 11-15, 2006

You grow it. Its got to be indigenous. It's got to have indigenous roots. You can fertilize it. You can water it. You can rip the weeds out, which I think is part of fighting corruption. Or you can help people do it. But they need to do it themselves.
