As quoted by "Ms. Fidelis Wainaina at the Foreign Affairs and International Development Committee", openparliament.ca (February 1, 2007)
  • Africa has challenges because of its diversity, and that could also be its strength.
  • ...to understand that Africa has resources. Its greatest resource is in its people. How you see us as solving the problem together with you, and positioning yourselves to be facilitators of this process, rather than fixing us, might be one way that we could begin to solve these problems.
  • A lot of what we do is affected by our cultural way of doing things. If we engage with African people, they would be able to help us think about their culture and how it affects farming.
