Gambia's first woman chief plants the seeds of changeListen /
The Gambia's first woman village chief is not only changing perceptions of what a chief looks like, but also of what they do.
Fatou Danso, who is also a farmer, has redistributed land that previously was farmed solely by men so that women can grow crops to support their families.
The vegetable garden scheme got off the ground thanks to a government project that supports women farmers together with funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
