Ryan Vroegindewey in Mali
2013 Student Media Grant Program
Ryan’s SMGP project is a mixed methods research drawing on past experiences and current pursuits as a photographer, researcher, and development worker to examine the issue of household food insecurity in Mali. He will be examining the determinants and indicators of household food insecurity in different livelihood zones of Mali. Ryan will explore and document these issues through photography and household interviews this summer. Following this fieldwork, he will synthesize his photographs and findings by developing “farmer household profiles,” which will aim at telling a true story about the food security risks and related realities that Malian households courageously weather from year to year.
