Most of the amazing photographs that I have used both on this site and in flyers about this project were all shot by one woman: Sarah Rice.
Earlier this year Sarah had the opportunity to travel with Mama Hope to Africa and document their projects and communities. From this trip she produced a fantastic array of photographs that helps frame these communities as people first and foremost, not objects of pity or simply as a backdrop for our own ‘good’ work.
Sarah was in Kisumu, Kenya with Mama Hope to witness the tapping of the borehole and subsequent celebration. The project I am working on will expand this project from its initial site into a nearby village where they will hopefully soon have their own celebration!
