Tanzanian Farmers

While I was in Tanzania I got to visit a number of different farmers in villages around Karatu. Here are some pictures of farmers and their families. I have to say, I was smitten with those goats and the local farmers could not understand why.

Angela Samuel is a CPAR supported farmer in a small village outside of Karatu, Tanzania.

Ibrahim Samuel, age 5, smiles for the camera on his mother's farm.

Emmanuel Samuel, age 5, also smiles for the camera.

Gabriel Qabi, age 5, smiles for the camera on his family's farm in a small village outside of Karatu, Tanzania.

Mary Augustine Qabi holds her daughter Efrasia outside of a specially constructed hut that CPAR trained them to construct to keep their goats from roaming their land.
