2020 Hunger-Fighters Dialogue

A headline series of events of the Foundation’s Borlaug-Adesina Fellowship, the Hunger-Fighters Dialogues will feature in-depth interviews with renowned contributors to Africa’s food security

Building a Better World Where No Person Should Go Hungry

The World Hunger Fighters Foundation (WHFF) will focus on growing and sustaining Africa’s food and agribusiness sector by attracting a new generation of youthful ‘agropreneurs.‘ 

The best investment for Africa is to make its young people more creative and innovative to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit. I strongly believe that the future Millionaires and Billionaires of Africa will come out of the Agriculture Sector.
