I took this picture in 2005 in Africa during a shoot for Irish NGOs in Malawi. Showcasing some of their initiatives to end hunger and poverty. 3 years later these images are still the best images Iโ€™ve taken in my entire life. One day I want to go back to this village and see how big these boys have grown. #atlanta #atlantaphotographer #irishaid #16daysofactivism #malawi #africa

Agro-pastoralists๐Ÿƒ in Awdal gather in their villageโ€™s schoolhouse for a participatory mapping of safe water sources๐Ÿšฐ Almost entirely illiterate, the community marked their farmland, tented settlements, and latrines with chalk, colored paper, ferns ๐ŸŒฟand turmeric.

One month after Guatemalaโ€™s Fuego volcano violently erupted, killing more than 100 people, we are providing child protection services in three shelters in Escuintla Department, reaching more than 800 children through our child friendly spaces.

In these newly created safe spaces, childrenโ€™s physical and emotional needs are being catered for by teams of trained psychologists who work every day with children and adolescents. Children are encouraged to take part in games and creative activities to help them deal with the trauma of the disaster and the stress of displacement. Pictured is an 8 year old girl and one of our trained psychologists who work with children at the shelter every day.

The 2018 Fifa World Cup is about to enter Round of 16. Meanwhile, children in Quang Tri, Viet Nam are taking part in community football games, coupled with safety messages, to keep fit and protect themselves from bombs and mines risks. #mineriskeducation #footballforlife #IrishAid #ProjectRENEW

Market-goers at this marketplace just outside of Blantyre get a reminder of the vitamin A rich properties of orange-fleshed sweetpotato. Throughout Malawi consumers are learning that orange is the color of health and to look for the tell-tale color to protect their family against vitamin A deficiency. CIP is helping to grow the potato and sweetpotato value chains and seed systems with generous funding from Irish Aid.

Kennedy Masamba, an Agricultural Research Scientist, from the Department of Agricultural Research Services (DARS) in Malawi has been teaming up with the International Potato Center on our mission to ramp up the potato and sweetpotato seed systems and get quality materials into the hands of the farmers who need them. In drought-prone Malawi sweetpotato and potatoes can offer food security when staples like maize fail. Key to this work is developing improved varieties suitable to local conditions. Working with National Agricultural Research Systems and scientists who know the local context and culture is critical to success. Through generous funding from Irish Aid the International Potato Center along with our national research partners are ramping up potato and sweetpotato production across the country.
