I am a Kenyan woman, a graduate student in my mid thirties and i would like to empower my community through research and training farmers using media platforms. I have written an abstract to present a paper at the upcoming 2015 Africa Conference at The University of Texas at Austin on DEVELOPMENT, URBAN SPACE, AND HUMAN RIGHTS IN AFRICA dated April 3-5, 2015 Austin, Texas. However i am looking for sponsorship to attend this awesome conference and present my topic: "Adopting Media Platforms Supported by Information Technology in Agriculture as a Development Strategy in Achievement of Food Security and Employment in East Africa." This opportunity will not only impart knowledge but also help African women especially east African mothers on better ways of enhancing food security and creating jobs for their children. I am therefore in need of travel funds to attend to this conference as currently im unable to raise them. upon getting the funds i will be able to present my paper and educate my community on the samre topic i will have presented. Look forward to your support.
