Sorting Crops
"I met this woman in a small village in Tanzania and she had been blind since birth and [she was] undeterred in the face of this kind of difficulty ... she would go into a field and she would forage for food with her feet and she would pick up leaves and roots and grass and crops and plants and bring them back to her house in a basket. Having done the rough sorting with her feet, she would then go through the basket with her hands...At one point she held up something and she showed it to me and she said through the interpreters, 'See, this is not food.'"
