AFRICA – A Change in the Air – with the pastoralist tribes in Uganda
..on expedition with International NGO PENHA (Pastoral and Environmental Network in the Horn of Africa) across Uganda visiting and documenting the Pastoralists that PENHA work with. The photographs document not only Pastoralist bucolic living, at once idyllic and tough but also the advance of modernity and the necessity for these gentle people to keep up with the environmental, social and economic change. The photographs were displayed in a two week long exhibition at Calumet’s flagship store. PENHA (the Pastoralist and Environmental Network in the Horn of Africa), is now celebrating its 30th Anniversary Year of essential work in Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan, Kenya and Djibouti. PhotoAid Global will be travelling with the nomadic communities in Somaliland soon. Let us know if you would like to support or get involved in any way.
BALI – Photobooks and Postcards for BAWA
In March2016, photographer Russell Carr and his wife joined friends for a holiday in Bali, Indonesia. “Having a love for street photography, I hit the road as much as possible over the course of the trip. During my travels I saw many street dogs, some of which seemed to be in bad condition. It was a very sad sight to see. On a day trip to Ubud it was comforting to come across a shop run by Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA). BAWA is a Bali-based non-profit organisation which works to save,protect and improve the lives of all animals in Bali and beyond. Funded by donations, BAWA relies heavily on a staff of dedicated volunteers.
I came home after an amazing holiday on a beautiful island, but I just couldn’t forget the images of those dogs in the streets needing help. I wanted to do something too, so I decided to put together some Photobooks and Postcards of some of my Bali street images to raise money for BAWA’s work. All profits from the sale of the Postcards and Photobooks go to BAWA so please dig deep to help out this great charity and the animals of Bali.”
LIFESTRAW – such a brilliant invention, and saves lives, buy one for yourself, buy a second and take it with you to give to someone who might need it on your trip. If you have a bundle of cash or raise sponsorship, you can take a family one or community one with you.
