Feb 23, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: OfficialWire

Current approaches to global agriculture are outdated, inefficient and don't give small farmers in poor countries the help they really need, Bill Gates told U.N. food agencies Thursday as he announced nearly $200 million in grants.

he announced nearly $200 million in grants.

The Microsoft founder brought his campaign to fight poverty and hunger in Africa and Asia to a forum of the U.N. International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), one of three Rome-based U.N. food agencies.

Much of some $2 billion spent over the past five years to fight poverty and hunger in Africa and Asia by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has gone toward improving agricultural productivity.

So all the people who are not signed in can read it too!!! Funny I can see it signed in but sign out and it dissapears. But lucky for all of you I am all over it lol!

Why help countries that that can help themselves annuetral, I know that there is poverty in the States but I also am confident that the states can over come it without foriegn aid.
Bravo on this one Bill, good to see you are helping those who most desperately need it.

lol @ Billion Gates. has a nice ring to it.

Here is a freebee from me to you Bill and all the poor people you care to share this with who have next to nothing, as an activist I dedicate myself to the well being of the future of the life on this planet and all my work is offered to the world for free indiscriminately because the well being of the future of the life on this p[lanet comes well before my own selfishness / is what it takes to do what I do / and having a brain, the will power, the discipline, the talent, the passion etc.

For Bill Gates, as well as the poor completely for free / on me.

I by no means meant any disrespect to Bill & Melinda.

Interesting, and call it a hunch but I doubt what you said made them feel disrespected.
