KAMPALA, Uganda — Former U.S. President Bill Clinton on Wednesday started his tour of Africa with Tanzania, where he will visit projects funded by his foundation to boost agriculture, health, education and wildlife conservation.
In addition to Tanzania, Clinton and his daughter Chelsea will also visit Kenya, Liberia and Morocco.
One of the Tanzania projects is a commercial farm operated by the Clinton Development Initiative that partners with thousands of neighboring smallholder farmers to provide them with training and good quality seeds for maize and soy crops.
On Wednesday Clinton traveled to a corn field that is part of the farm project. He surveyed the crop outputs that have increased as a result of improved techniques and technology, according to the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton’s next stop after Tanzania will be neighboring Kenya.
