Caption

Peace Corps volunteer Alisha Smith-Arthur speaks with a women's group in Togo about family planning. When doing any activity with women, their children are always present. As you can see from the postures of the women on the sidelines, they are exhausted. The women in Togo work the fields, cook the food, care for the children, do the laundry, and carry water and fire wood on their heads, sometimes from miles away, every single day.
