Winnowers of Hope
A group of women sieve leftover rice husks outside a mill in Mbale, Eastern Uganda, in search of overlooked grains which have not been gathered. By re-sieving the mill’s chaff, the women gather enough rice to feed their families. Rice, a delicacy which is only eaten on special occasions in some rural areas, costs a little more than most other foodstuffs on the market.
