Second, congratulations to Ms. Kaila Buerger, the winner of this year’s VFP scholarship! Ms. Buerger will be on the show to discuss her scholarship entry and to share her plans for the fall. We are very much looking forward to the conversation.
The first half of the program will feature an interview with Bara Kassambara from the West African nation of Mali. Mr. Kassambara is the “Country Director” for the Winrock Foundation in Mali, and coordinates that Foundation’s community and economic development. Mr. Kassambara is a friend of our own Mark Stopha, who has twice volunteered to assist the Foundation with fisheries development on the Niger River.
