I was recently assigned to document a communication project in Malawi run by the Swedish development cooperation organisation We Effect. The project entails a Swedish woman living and working side by side with a female farmer in Malawi for three weeks. We Effect posted a job advert in Swedish media were they looked for applicants for one of the worlds toughest jobs; being a female farmer in a poor country. About 600 people applied for the position. Karin Kling, a pediatric nurse from Stockholm, was selected and travelled to Malawi in January to join Biata Chisi and her family in Salima, Malawi.
Here’s more information about the project (in Swedish): http://tuffastejobbet.se/om/
