A villager having a good time during the participatory “pocket” exercise of the evaluation. That picture symbolizes for me a very positive aspect of our cross-cultural gender awakening effort.
Marrion and a young girl at a village water point. The increased cleanliness and increased latrine use in the villages really impressed me. So many people taking baths in the afternoons and evenings -- encouraging to see!
A young girl carrying two buckets of water. It reminds me of the working life of children and of the stories my Grandma Post used to tell me: she said she was so short because those heavy water buckets in the Netherlands held down her growth! This was a good reminder of my own heritage and history.
Many beautiful family gardens in many different villages with so much potential to make a nutritional impact in these communities where stunting rates are very high!
A picture of Marrion with a grandmother and a young grandchild. I was really impressed by the rapport Marrion has with the villagers!
The hospitality of our village hosts. They opened their homes to us and provided bed and breakfast! At night it got very cold, but the host family provided us with blankets too.
