    Every time I go back, I learn more Farmer to Farmer volunteer Ples Spradley Spradley has deep Arkansas roots. Seven generations of his family have lived in the state, a line stretching all the way back to 1842. An associate professor at the University of Arkansas, Division of Agriculture, Spradley still lives in his hometown of Little Rock, growing blueberries and pecans on a farm with his wife. But despite these longstanding ties, part of his heart lives far away in the African nation of Senegal. When Winrock International tapped Spradley, a pesticide expert, to volunteer for the USAID John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) program in 2015, he jumped at the opportunity. Funded by USAID, the program sends mid-career or retired professionals like Spradley on two to three week assignments in developing countries. These expert volunteers then promote sustainable improvements in food security and agricultural processing, production and marketing. #F2F #FarmertoFarmer #USAID #Agriculture #Senegal #WestAfrica #Africa #Ag4Dev #GlobalGoals #GlobalDev #FoodSecurity #Arkansas

    The grim reality in South Sudan is that girls are more likely to die at birth than complete their primary education. Understanding that this robs the country of critical talents, the South Sudan government has made the education of girls a top priority. Winrock works with government officials at all levels to dramatically increase educational opportunities for girls through capacity building and by providing both teacher and peer-led mentoring. Winrock International is expanding girls education in South Sudan through the @dfid_uk-funded Girls'' Education South Sudan (GESS) project. #SouthSudan #EducateGirls #EmpowerGirls #YouthSkills #GirlsEducation #LetGirlsLearn #Education #GenderEquality #Equality #DFID #Winrock #WinrockInternational

    Saiful Alam was an early champion of mangrove forests to protect his village in southwest Bangladesh. So long as I live, I will keep planting trees, he says. One kilometer of intact mangrove forest can save an average of $181 per household (annual per capita income in Bangladesh is $1,466), based on the protection it provides land and property during typhoons and storm surges. Winrocks Climate Resilient Ecosystems and Livelihoods project, funded by USAID, has transformed almost 450 hectares with mangrove trees that buffer the land. #Bangladesh #Mangroves #Mangrove #Climate #Resilience #ClimateResilience #Ecosystem #Livelihoods #USAID #Winrock #WinrockInternational
