One of the three village 'cafes' where beer distilled from maize is sold. The cafes are only open in the period after the tobacco harvest, when people have more disposable income.
The village of Dickson contains 55 households and some 300 inhabitants. In 2005 photographer Jan Banning and writer Dick Wittenburg spent two extended stays in the village interviewing its people
and photographing them in their homes as part of a project on poverty. They returned to Dickson in 2015 to see how the villagers had fared in the intervening years which had seen the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals.
