To continue reading a s many Agriculture net works in Africa, come up with materials that can be put into Swahili language for non English speakers to learn them
To start is to produce some instructional material for 1 subject, such as a particular methofd of irrigation, then present it in 5 diffferent ways, and ask the farmers/readers what are the good/bad points of each style. It could include text instructions as one style, step-by-step photos as another, etc, and viewing on phone or DVD+TV or PC. :: So we 'show' people the styles of teaching, instead of describing the styles to them. It's always better to show people things than talk about it.
