Opening and Reception, Sunday, Nov 18th 5pm – 6pm celebrating The Corridor’s New Photo Exhibit, 2nd floor Hancock Church Education Wing, 1912 Mass Ave, Lexington  

The Women of Panama & Their Stories, curated by Sustainable Harvest International (SHI).  SHI provides farming families in Central America with the training and tools to restore the planet’s tropical forests while overcoming poverty.  Meet 22 rural Panamanian women working with SHI to improve the lives of their families and communities.  Read their words and through their pictures, see what is important to each.   

This photo essay is being shared with us by SHI.  Florence Reed, founder of SHI, visited Panama with fine arts students from Ohio Wesleyan University.  After interviewing 22 women from 2 communities, the students took pictures of the women and then loaned each woman a camera to take with her for a few days to document her own life in photos.  These interviews gave Flo a chance to once again see that she still doesn‘t know all the ways that SHI’s work is impacting the environment and the lives of the people we serve.
