Photo exhibit about work at Cornell University Mann Library
A photo and video exhibit, entitled Farming for Change which highlights some of SFHC’s earlier work alongside MAFFA will be on display at Cornell University’s Mann Library in Ithaca, New York, for the month of April. This exhibit chronicles some of the struggles and achievements of smallholder farming families in Malawi and Tanzania, in their efforts to improve food security, nutrition, social equity, and sustainable land management in the face of climate change. Climate change is one of many challenges that farmers need to take into consideration, alongside deep gender and other social inequalities, poverty, degraded soils, and limited state support. The photos and videos are drawn from over 15 years of participatory research carried out by Dr. Rachel Bezner Kerr, SFHC staff and farmers and other researchers.
