    Nowhere is the participatory approach to agricultural research more urgently needed than in Africa. These case studies should be read by everyone with a long-term interest in the welfare of rural Africa because they show that, although there is a long way to go, the enthusiasm and commitment are already in place to enable NGOs to meet this vital challenge.' - Paul Richards, Wageningen Agricultural University, The Netherlands
