First Bill Gates, now Gates Foundation answers you

When we asked iReporters to send their questions for a CNN interview with Bill Gates last month, we received 121 videos – more than we’ve ever received for an iReport Interview! (Yes, that even includes Michelle Obama.)


Gates himself answered four questions, but there were so many passionate, knowledgeable ones left unanswered. We were so impressed with the questions about agricultural development in Africa that we shared them with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. And guess what? The Foundation agreed to answer some more!


Roy Steiner, a deputy director in the agricultural program at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, responded to another round of questions in this in-depth video for iReport. He addresses: barriers to development, how to promote sustainability and other needs in Africa. Congratulations to all the iReporters who had their questions answered!



Thanks for the Gates Foundation and Steiner for personally answering these hard-hitting questions from iReporters LaCharles James, Noelle Bates, Girish Kotwal and Adrienne Lahr. If you are a curious soul brimming with questions, we invite you to check out the iReport Interview group for the latest assignments.
