    Molke (wearing a red sweater) is 12 years old and lives In Chaabniya , in the Hammam Mellegue district, with her familty. She goes to school in El Kef. Samah (blue shirt) is her 9-year old cousin. Ten families in Chaabniya are subsisting on the land they cultivate next to the river. They also collect zgougou (black seeds extracted from pine cones) which are sold in season once a year. Men collect the pine cones while women keep the fire going for the zgougou extraction. This activity provide an extra income in the winter when there is no other source of income. Without running water, electricity, or solar energy, the families live in the dark during the winter.
