Despite challenges of international travel due to COVID-19, Missouri State University’s Dr. Benjamin Onyango got to spend some time in Kenya this past summer working with KAG (Kenya Assemblies of God) EAST University.
An agriculture professor, Onyango helped to develop agricultural courses for the Maasai community surrounding the university. The project was made possible by the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program.
This is the second time Onyango has received this fellowship. The program started in 2013 to enable African-born scholars living in the U.S. or Canada to undertake projects at African higher education institutions.
Onyango talks about his work in Kenya.
