Ndeye


This is my sister Ndeye right before Tabaski during my second year at site (November 2009).  Everyone else was just sitting around, braiding hair or shelling peanuts.  Ndeye is extra special to me because when her son Ibou was born (her first child), he was extremely malnourished and Ndeye didn't know how to properly breastfeed.  I worked with her on it and coached her about the importance of exclusive breastfeeding and Ibou started gaining weight!  He is now a healthy, active, and precocious 3 year old and Ndeye talks to other new moms about the importance of exclusive breastfeeding the first 6 months.
