Offers of great assistance continue to pour in from Israel following His Excellencies visit to Israel some months back. Dr Joseph Shevel, president of the Galilee institute of International management and his Director Hanit Pollack Pinto have visited the governor with offers to give Siaya farmers a great boost by taking them to Israel for short courses of 3 months to boost their agricultural know how.
Israeli agricultural technology is world legendary after the Jews literally turned the hitherto unproductive desert into a marvel of agricultural viability using state of the art irrigation technology. Siaya enjoys abundance of water thanks to massive water bodies.Rivers Yala and Nzoia  both drain into lake Victoria. It is this potential that the Israelis can exploit to turn Siaya into a food basket.
