Innovation in extension through adult literacy classes

The experience of Prolinnova-Kenya partners was presented at a session on “Learning networks” at the international conference “Innovations in Extension and Advisory Services” held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 15-18 November 2011. The conference was organised by CTA (Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU) and GFRAS (Global Forum on Rural Advisory Services). Geoffrey Kamau of KARI (Kenya Agricultural Research Institute) and co-coordinator of Prolinnova-Kenya, presented a paper on how a farmer-developed innovation of growing millet seedlings in nurseries is being spread in an innovative way: “Adult literacy classes as a pathway for outscaling innovations: the case of finger millet in eastern Kenya”.
