Ikiwa Abdulla  (hands at right) and her sister prepare the shellfish Abdulla gathered earlier in the day for their family dinner in Fumba, Zanzibar.  Abdulla is a participant in a shellfish program that hopes to teach women in Zanzibar how to cultivate shellfish. While women already harvest shellfish, the program will help replenish the already overfished stocks of oysters and clams and promote economic opportunities for women in rural villages in Zanzibar.
