In Ghana, Dr. Kwesi Agwani is passing it on with a grateful heart! “It” in this case is help for humanity.

Kind benefactors including John Hammond and Harry Inman supported Dr. Agwani as he worked through Master and PhD programs.

In the United Kingdom, Mr. Hammond had a breadfruit dream, and he asked Dr. Agwani to carry it out in Ghana.

Accordingly, in his graduate school project, he helped farmers grow breadfruit.

Now, as he has for the past decade, Dr. Agwani works for the Ministry of Food and Agriculture. His dedication to breadfruit is unwavering.

After John Hammond passed away, his family founded an NGO in his memory called Breadfruit Line. John’s son, Robert Hammond, began working with Dr. Agwani on new planting projects.

Though Rob passed away in 2022, Dr. Kwesi Agwani continues the family’s mission with passion.

He has helped introduce breadfruit to the palate of Ghanaians by organizing numerous food demonstrations. At markets, people are shown how breadfruit can be prepared steamed, mashed, or even as chips! In all ways, breadfruit is being well accepted.

The next step, Dr. Agwani says, is to use breadfruit to feed the children of Ghana!
