Lieketseng (Keke) Phooko from Lesotho, is working as a Public Engagement Intern at the Canadian Foodgrains Bank in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Keke gives presentations to schools and community groups on Conservation Agriculture, a farming method that disturbs the soil as little as possible which is particularly important in Lesotho where the soil is easily eroded. In Lesotho, Keke trains farmers and thinks it is a shame that there are not more women farmers, because she has proven that they are just as capable as men. According to Keke, successful Conservation Agriculture will increase food security in her country, so that everyone has enough to eat.
