Photos from the Field: Women and Youth in Nueva Guinea's farming communities

F2F volunteer Laila Salimi just returned from an assignment in Nicaragua. The purpose of this assignment was to complete a community and organizational diagnostic on farming cooperatives in Nueva Guinea, Nicaragua. These groups will receive F2F volunteers as part of Partners' new country strategy focused on Women and Youth in Nicaragua.  Laila met with producers in 4 communities and visited their farms to understand how their organizations and farms were functioning.  

Below are some photos from her trip!
