AyikoeleThis is Akuele. She lives and works hard in the village. She is a mother, a grand mother, wife and the provider for the family.

This photograph is of her watering her allotment by hand about half a mile outside the village. Single handed she grows nearly all the food that the family eat.

She also grows palm trees, cracks the nuts and makes oil a little of which she sells.

She is one fo the people we always talk to when ever we visit. She is strong, committed, intelligent, hard working and optimistic. Akuele is a leader.
