Euodoō is ARI’s annual journal that features research papers and essays on important topics of the Rural Leaders Training Program: sustainable farming, community building, servant leadership—all with a ‘rural future’ in mind that is waiting to be built!

This time, we present the reflection paper by a recent Kenyan graduate, an academic thesis on ecology by a Japanese volunteer, and an essay on leadership by an ARI staff member. In addition, you can find the speech that ARI’s founding member Dr. Toshihiro Takami delivered upon receiving the 1996 Ramon Magsaysay Award for International Understanding.


  • Martin Gikunda Kirigia: “Sustainable Agriculture and the Community Development Training Program at the Asian Rural Institute”
  • Sôta Ono: “Restoring ‘Wholeness’ in Our Relationship with Nature by Working for Food”
  • Bernard Timothy Appau: “The Community Development Worker as a Servant Leader”
  • Toshihiro Takami: “The Fate of Rural Folks in Urbanizing Asia”
