WE BELONG (Ongoing Project)

A photography project that aims to showcase the empowerment of women in coffee. The mission behind this project is, unveil and photograph the deepest thoughts, dreams, concerns, and problems of female coffee producers and the most intimate moments in their day-to-day life. 

The statistics confirm female coffee farmers are becoming increasingly involved in cash crop productions as a result of male out-migration, or what's more commonly known as the "feminization of agriculture" (Deere, 2005, FAO, 2006). Also, this research ensures women in coffee are re-investing more than male coffee producers in education for their children, farm training for them, as well as, putting more back into the farms.
