TRY is an organization in The Gambia that empowers women by training them and giving them the tools to harvest oysters. The women sell their oysters alongside the roads in Gambia’s capital city Banjul, offering them for $.55 US dollars for 75 pieces of oyster meat. While entering the oyster harvesting industry has been a tremendous boon for the 500 women involved in TRY operations, their income is still scant, especially during the dry season in which oysters cannot be harvested.
