Ashoka Fellow
The Gambia
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Mama Manneh's work was prepared when Mama Manneh was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Mama Manneh is creating replicable, grassroots-based solutions for the most severe food security problem facing farmers in the Sahel, the saison de soudure (season of hunger), beginning in June and lasting until October, when the last of a farmer’s remaining food stocks are exhausted, and before the early fall planting yields food.
