Haiti: Rural Food Security through a Woman’s Lens
2016 Student Media Grant Program
From January-April 2015, Student Media Grant winner Diana Juárez-Sánchez led a home garden project in Haiti. This initiative empowered rural families through training and education, equipping them with the knowledge necessary to sustain their gardens which, in turn, enabled them to provide food for their families.
Throughout the project, Diana asked participants to take photos of their everyday lives. Her resulting scrapbooks provide a glimpse into the culture, traditions, food and struggles of the Haitian community. Check out both a scrapbook from her and the participants’ perspective:
