World’s Toughest Job

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):

  1. Great photos – I especially like the expression of the young boy in #9. It would be most interesting to read a commentary by
    Karin about her experience. Judging from these photos it was a very good one!
