Group interview in Kuwde

Group interview in Kuwde

Program Director Charles Piot, language instructor Jesper Karma, and Duke students interviewing young men from Kuwde who have traveled to work on plantations in Nigeria. One of the interviewees traveled two years in a row, returning after the first trip with a motorcycle and after the second trip with cash. Today, he operates a moto-taxi service and a flour mill on the mountain. The flour mill in particular has positively impacted a large number of families on the mountain, who no longer have to walk the 4-5 km downhill and up to grind sorghum and corn flour, a staple of daily meals.
