  6. Gombolo

    Last summer I spent a week in Gombolo, Kenya with the Norwegian aid organization Aid in Action. They focus onthe basic needs for people in undeveloped countries such as clean water, nutritious food, safety, and care. Everyone involved in the organization is a volunteer and thus 100% of the donated money goes directly into development aid projects that include: drilling for wells, building water-infrastructure, building roads and children’s centers, buying greenhouses and food for the schools, and the planting of papaya trees. Aid in Action has managed to successfully use competitions with prizes to encourage farmers to plant papaya trees on their properties. Their ambitions are that the villagers will become self-sufficient and be able to continue without financial help from the organization by establishing their own economy. Below are the photographs taken of the beautiful people of Gombolo.

  10. The Bandar-Log Journey part 3 is now live.

    As we near Jaipur, the driver we hired insists we climb to the top of a hill.  I am already reminiscing about this journey, now that it is nearing its end.  Slowly, as I make my way higher and higher, a Hindu Mandir reveals itself up ahead at what seems to be the top. Through a megaphone and some very large speakers celebratory music is blasting outwards.  On the hills nearby I can see more temples that are doing the same.  At the very top, a rush of wind greets me, and there, before me, the city of Jaipur is revealed. A roaring sound erupts as I reach the edge. The city’s buzzing horns, the music from the temples, beating drums, and every living creature it seems, is chiming in as if to coax the sun to break through the clouds. Finally, the sun does peak through the haze, as if on key to the beat of the drums.  Then the light explodes across the land, filling Jaipur with color. It is here, at this moment, that I can finally look at India in a peaceful state of mind: I sit on the edge of a balcony, under one of the blaring ancient speakers that has a broken stand. Groups of smiling people dance, celebrating the week of Holi. Happy Holi.
