2015 Hunger Report from Bread for the World Institute

In March, I had the opportunity to travel with a team from Bread for the World Institute as they gathered information for the 2015 Hunger Report. The institute's goal is to educate policy makers and the public about hunger in the United States and abroad. The 2015 Hunger Report explains why ending discrimination against women and girls is crucial to ending hunger.

I am thrilled to have some of my images included in the report, but more importantly to have a small role in educating the world about the experience of women in Rwanda. Take a few minutes to read the report and learn how women are the key to addressing hunger in international communities.

Experience Rwanda with Nyamirambo Women’s Center

Tourism in Rwanda often centers on gorillas, volcanoes, and Nyungwe Forest. But I want to promote an amazing community-based tourism project that showcases urban life and promotes cultural understanding in Kigali. Are you planning a vacation to Rwanda? Add Nyamirambo Women’s Center to your itinerary!

What Can You Do There?

  • Take tours of the women's homes, local food, and daily urban life.
  •  Attend a traditional Rwandan basket weaving class. It’s harder then it looks!
  •  Buy beautiful African handicrafts from the Umutima sewing project.
  • Visit the Isomero Library, which provides computer, Kinyarwanda, and English classes for the Nyamirambo neighborhood.

NWC is one of my pro bono photography projects for 2014. The organization meets all my rules for working for free. Their programs are changing the lives of over ninety five women in their community by providing them with skills and education. Evidence shows that when women are empowered, they actively improve not only their life but their communities’ prosperity. 

How are women changing the world in your community?
