Project Title: 
Participatory Agroecology, Nutrition and Gender Study
Project Abstract: 
Gender equality within household is an under-examined pathway between agricultural intervention and child nutrition. Participatory approaches in agriculture education, despite its potential to address this inequalities, are rarely conducted nor rigorously evaluated. Singida Nutrition and Agroecological Project (SNAP) sought to do that and will start its intervention in July 2016. My dissertation research is imbedded within this larger study, and travel grant is requested to support SNAP’s launch activities: (1) training for mentor farmers, (2) participant observation of initial engagement of mentor farmers with participating farmers, and (3) baseline in-depth interview regarding gender equality within their household
