“We have been on the field today. Please meet Ziema, a 55 year old married woman from Zukpiri and a beneficiary of the dry season gardening. She is the second of two wives. She has seven children who have all left to the towns around Ghana. She is currently living with her grand daughter found in the pictures attached.
