In Tanzania, we visited the World Vegetable Centre in Arusha, where researchers and farmers are working together to improve diets and livelihoods.

In Uganda, we met with an organization run by two 20-year old volunteers that built school gardens to teach children about nutrition. It's called Project DISC (part of Slow Food International).

In Rwanda, we met with families outside Kigali benefiting from a donation of small livestock from Heifer International.

In Mozambique, we attended a training session in which farmers were brought in from across the country to share with each other what was working. This will culminate in a free book of best practices, published in multiple indigenous languages.
