This photo was taken in May 2013 in Madagascar. It shows Francine, a member of the local women's gardening group. SPA funds were used to purchase farming tools and seeds for the women to create household gardens. In addition to physical items women attended eight sessions covering various improved agricultural techniques to make the most of their gardens. In this picture Francine is showing off just a bit of what she has grown. Not only does she have enough to feed her family but enough left over to sell as well.
