The ZEST Project: Fair prices for Zanzibar's farmers

The Zest project, fair prices for Zanzibar's farmers

Tourists flock to Zanzibar each year, but the money they spend has little impact on the lives of the majority of the population. A new project run by VSO International is helping an association of farmers to build better links with the thriving tourist sector, and to earn a far higher income from their crops.
