As winners of the ONE Campus Challenge’s THRIVE campaign last semester, Carthage College played host to ONE agriculture fellow, journalist, and author, Roger Thurow on March 18. It took months of planning, and Carthage was proud to hear from this renowned anti-hunger advocate and champion. Roger was able to share his passion for agriculture development to students throughout the day in large group presentations and classroom discussions. For many of the students to whom he spoke, this was their first time hearing about the issues. For others, this was the first time faces and stories were put to the numbers.The gears in their heads were clearly turning as Thurow shared his experiences helping Kenyan farmers increase their yields and provide stronger food security for their community and families. As Roger demonstrated the tremendous and sustainable benefits smart US agricultural investments are quickly achieving in Africa, he asked Carthage students to lend their voice to the ONE Campaign in advocating on behalf of these programs.
