The Gambia 2017
After a day’s work in her village’s community garden, this Wolof woman returns to her Mbantan Killing compound at dusk with the fruits of her labor carefully balanced on her head. But her work is not done—there is water to be drawn and carried in buckets from the village well before she can start preparing her family’s evening meal. The cabbage, okra, eggplant, bitter tomatoes, onions, and hot peppers she grows are important both as an addition to her family’s food bowls and as a source of income.
