[2 years ago] Empowering women in order to save the harvest:

This is what outreach workers like Daudi are up against. She travels from farm to farm in the villages near Babati, but can only get women to talk to her when the men are not home. She talks to Hawa Saidi Ibura, but only because her husband seems to be busy in another part of the house. When she gets to Faraji Msechu’s farm, then Julius Akanaay’s farm, their wives sit quietly during the conversation while the men do all the talking. Daudi, sitting outside the farmers’ houses on a stoop or a chair if there’s one around, asks every farmer the same questions, all focused on how much of their harvest they’ve lost to insects or mold, how much they’ve sold, how much they will need to feed their families until the next harvest.
