Woman threshing beans in Khulungira Village, central Malawi
Khulungira is a village of about 150 families in central Malawi, near the border with Mozambique, 27 km from the nearest paved road and 50 km from the nearest town.
There is no electricity and no running water. No one here owns a car or a motorcycle. Few parents can afford to send their children to secondary school. The people of Khulungira grow their own food, cut their own firewood and build their own houses (photo credit: ILRI/Stevie
