A young girl pushes a wheelbarrow of boiled groundnuts through the city of Monrovia, Liberia. - With small change clutched in our fists, my sister and I would run the errand of buying boiled groundnut for my older brother who exercised his big sibling role to the fullest. The seller had empty cans, with labels torn off, some tarnished, some newly welcomed. The can size determined the price. The groundnut could still be warm from the sun, or maybe it was from the cooking. Inside, it appeared as if a purple light covered each peanut. I could shell so many just to fill a bowl with that purple. There were times I would take them in all at once, crushing the exterior with my teeth until I felt the softness of the interior press through the broken shells.

Mohammed Mboudou, covered in natron dust, a sodium based mineral found in pockets of the Lake Chad basin left behind as the water evaporates, in Mayala, Chad.
Lake Chad has reduced in size by 90 percent in the last 60 years. Even though the level of water naturally fluctuates over long periods of time, the advancing Sahara desert and the influx of hundreds of thousands of displaced people due to the Boko Haram conflict are straining the already weakened natural resources and crippling local economies. Mboudou has been mining natron deposits for over 20 years as the shoreline of the lake receded from outside his village, but the recent Boko Haram crisis has cut off the many trading routes through the lake to Nigeria, the basin's main market, forcing many miners to find other sources of income.

This is part of my ongoing personal project on how the Boko Haram crisis has affected the fragile environment of the Lake Chad Basin.
