Soy beans are a good source of protein. They also are easy to turn into tofu, soymilk and soy bouille. Bouille is a common drink here and is best described as flour-thickened sugar water with rice. The recipe can easily be modified, which is good for volunteers trying to introduce more nutrients into a local diet.
Last week, I made soy bouille with the women’s gic in my village (a gic is a small, usually financially-based group).
The Primary School in my village where we meet.
After a presentation, we try to add a bit of health education. I speak in French and she translates into Gbaya.

Foosball anyone? (NOTE: The ingenuity of the petits here never ceases to impress me.)
BONUS: Did you really even come to Africa without a picture of you and a
smiling child? (Small children still fear me and whiteness.)
