The three videos:
- Sustainable Nutrition 4 All was produced for SNV’s flagship agricultural program Sustainable Nutrition 4 All in Zambia. The video portrays families triggered and empowered to reduce the causes of malnutrition in their own community by themselves. This is their story.
- Farming in Sneakers was produced for SNV’s flagship programme Opportunities for Youth Employment in Tanzania. Here, where farming is seen as tough work for no pay, three young farmers know differently. These young farmers are transforming their ambitions into achievements. This is their story.
- Balancing Benefits was produced for SNV’s transformative gender approach in Tanzania. Here SNV works together with men and women to change social and gender constraints; empowering men at home and in business to share authority with women!
