Gathering information

By Teresa Mellish
On this visit to Kenya we  gathered  information for the final report on the Food Security project.

One way of doing this was to interview women on their shambas (farms). It’s a wonderful opportunity to see their screenhouses and greenhouses.
We randomly select the women and then travel to their farms.
They are always cooperative and willing to answer our questions. They always offer us tea and frequently give us a few eggs, some mangoes, passion fruit, a few pieces of sugar cane or some delicious plums.   All we have to give them is a 2014 calendar.   
Here are two pictures- one of Ilse interviewing a woman on her shamba (with Salome translating)  and the other of fruit we were given over a couple of days.
