Three Montana State University (MSU) students travel with their professor, Dr. Florence Dunkel and secondary school global studies teacher, Belgrade, MT, Denise Dahl. Students are majoring in neurobiology, art and design, and liberal studies. First, the team briefs students and faculty in the program at University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, MN, with village goals they will address. MSU President Geoffrey Gamble then explains the atmosphere of research and creative activity support MSU provides for its students, such as these. In Mali, the team is joined by Dr. Dean Drenk, who co-founded Nine Villages with the MSU Mali mentor and MSU engineering student, Sidy Ba, and inspired by the Mali internship/externship program. Students present work to Dr. Kadiatou Gamby, director of Fruit and Vegetable Research in Mali. With their Malian colleagues, the team attends International Women's Day activities, and conducts research in the village of Sanambele on food preference and availability to address their request to work with them on issues of "hunger" (kwashiorkor, a nutritional deficiency of essential amino acid imbalance).
