I’m still here. Just kind of drowning in work for my masters. I really want to finish my series on white men who stood up against racism, but… that’s taking a back seat right now.
In the mean time, I’d like to share with you three really cool stories about iThemba Projects that I wrote/created on exposure.co I absolutely love everything about exposure when it comes to telling stories in a visually beautiful way. I really think you’ll enjoy these (if I do say so myself!)… and then go get lost down a rabbit hole of other amazing photo stories.
Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll be back in action with more on the blog.
Let’s Play: The story of Asidlale. This is the story of our early childhood development work. Very cute kid pictures, you can’t go wrong!
Watch us Run: How a Running Club is changing lives in Sweetwaters, South Africa. Who doesn’t love a good underdog story (that’s REAL, and isn’t a made up Disney movie)?? Be inspired. This team of teens face huge obstacles in life, but kick butt when it comes to running.
A Building that’s all about People: The story of a building that’s not about a building. Environmentally friendly, empowering local community members with marketable skills… it’s just so cool.
Can you tell I love the organization I work for? They don’t do everything right (who does?) But they’re trying. And learning. And if more people in the world were as thoughtful and intentional about the way they do “aid”/ “community development”/whatever… the world would be a much better place.
