It was raining in Addis; persistent, driving rain, punctuated by the occasional drenching downpour forcing residents to run for cover. The rainy season has come early in Ethiopia. Traveling north, through the band of hills which ring the capital, the soaked countryside was green and lush. A perfect day to visit agricultural projects in the Debre Libanos Woreda.
Ethiopia launched a highly ambitious plan in 2010 to double the size of the economy over five years, and raising productivity in agriculture is key.

This week I’m in Africa, a place I go a couple of times a year to see our foundation’s work in the field. The reason I go on these trips is to see for myself what’s happening and I come away with success stories, notes on things that we need to get smarter about, and a better understanding overall. This time I’m visiting Ethiopia and Zambia, which should be very interesting.

Temegnush Dhabi’s two-hectare farm in East Shewa in central Ethiopia looks very different today than it did three years ago. Back then, she grew mostly teff, a popular type of cereal grown in Ethiopia. Teff fetched a reasonable price at market, but demanded hard labor and expensive fertilizer.
