The Women of Nsongwe
This collaborative film highlights the role agricultural development can play in providing hope, inspiration, pride and actual income to African women who otherwise had few, if any, employment options for themselves and their families. Narrated by rural women in southern Zambia, this film shows how the work of Rutgers University Professor Jim Simon and his African based NGO-ASNAPP-Zambia team, with support by USAID, provided them the means to economic independence.
