Ruth Oniang'o

I am Ruth Khasaya Oniang'o, a Kenyan, former parliamentarian, food and nutrition scientist, rural development specialist and one who empowers the resource poor small holder farmers and especially women with information on value chain, nutrition, financial matters, the need to use inputs in their planting in order to realize optimal yields.

That is why I founded the Rural Outreach Africa, through which I mobilize resources to help these communities, and I also founded the African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development to give a voice to African scientists as I also use it to advocate internationally for the poor and neglected smallholder farmers of Africa.

We address everything in a very holistic manner: proper and sufficient use of inputs to realize good yields from the farm, proper storage and minimal use of chemicals as misuse could be injurious to health, yet one needs to avoid wastage, a healthy diverse diet for good nutrition, and enabling farmers to sell what they have in abundance at good.
