I travelled to Kolda, one of the most remote areas of Senegal, to photograph the transformative impact of healthy, nutritious food on people’s lives. Historically, Kolda has one of the highest rates of malnutrition and child mortality in the country. To break the cycle of food insecurity, Nutrition International and other development partners launched PINKK - Projet intégré de nutrition dans les régions de Kolda et de Kédougou - assisting farmers in growing nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables. These portraits of farmers and their children illustrate 3 years of prosperity in Kolda's villages.
