Niger beneficiary in community garden

This photo tied for 2nd place in the Food for Peace photo contest.


Pictured is the community garden that Mercy Corps helped the women start in their village this year. It’s the first garden they’ve ever managed, and they hope to extend it next year with a drip irrigation system that Mercy Corps plans to build. They’re growing a wide variety of vegetables like tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage and potatoes, which they use to feed their families and also sell for some additional income.
