Summary[edit]

Description
English: Everyday, around noon, when the tide is low, lots of women head to the dry lagoon to take care of that seaweed farm.

Each women has a parcel to grow "Mwani", seaweed in Swahili. The farms are made up of little sticks in neat rows in the warm, shallow water. Once they harvest the seaweed, it is used for many purpose: food, cosmetics, fabric... It's a fantastic gift from the ocean!

A gift that, with the money they earned from it, allow those women to emancipate themselves from their husband and support their family on their own! Priceless.
