Last week the National Peace Corps Association and the World Policy Journal announced the winners of their Africa Rural Connect (ARC) Essay Contest. The goal of the contest was to gain insight from people around the world about how to fight hunger in rural Africa. Ali Djeffarou won first-place. To read the top six winning essays, keep an eye out for the World Policy Institute’s Fall 2010 issue of World Policy Journal, a leading foreign policy publication in the United States.
