You think you've got style, until you visit Karamoja. 😏#πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬

Sub-Saharan women and girls spend 40 billion hours a year collecting water. Increasing women's access to clean water will free up hundreds of hours and will increase school attendance for girls. #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬πŸ’§

Try to remember, when was the last time you've been reallllyyy hungry?
In Sub Saharan Africa, one in every four lacks food for a healthy and productive life. Even after spending time in rural Africa, I find it hard to believe that in 2018 people will still die of hunger.
We can point fingers on climate change, droughts, population growth etc.. But if we really want to see a change, we need to become this change. πŸ₯˜πŸŒ

Clean faces, shiny clothes and big smiles means another village has now access to clean water. Happy weekend!

Remember few posts back I shared a hands photo and you wrote some beautiful captions for it? Here are the faces behind that photo and a caption I liked by @chinkinthearmour "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn life around." (For the hands photo go here: #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬πŸ’§βœοΈ )

My 2017 journey in less than 2 minutes! Link in Bio πŸ“½οΈπŸ”Š
People of 2017 is a highlights compilation of the past year. Many of you have followed me during this eventful year, and I wanted to bring you the best moments that passed through my lens. It was a year was full of emotions: I laughed and cried seeing people getting clean water for the first time in rural Africa. I feared for my life when I was caught off guard by a 7.1 earthquake in Mexico. I got angry when I learned that persons with albinism are being hunted for their bones in Malawi, but also got determined to something about it.
I was inspired by the Tibetan monks I met in Nepal, they taught me the importance of listening. On the other side of the world, I was envious of the faith and patience the Jewish community of Ethiopia holds.
And on the tiny Island of Dominica, after hurricane Maria, I witnessed true kindness and courage. All of these emotions come back to me when I look at my photos, and I hope that I was able to share these emotions with you through this video.
Of course I would not be able to do this work without the people I met on the road: fixers, translators, good Samaritans, drivers, and most important the heroes of this film. Thank you for entering my life and making it so much richer.
And finally thank YOU for being here to remind me again and again that these stories matter, not just to me but to the thousands of you all around the world.
Peace, Love and Happy New Year!

Some people don't have food on their table or even a table in this case. In the photo is a mother preparing dinner from leaves. It's not a special diet or a cultural delicacy - This is survival. I bet you can't wait for Christmas dinner. #πŸƒπŸ΄

This stream is Akuyam village’s only water source. With the dry season around the corner, soon the water in it will dry up completely. That will leave the village in a serious water shortage, and they'll have to travel even longer distances to find water until the next rainy season. Because of climate change, every year the dry season period is getting longer and Akuyams struggle to survive gets more real. #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬πŸ’§

Some little children I meet here are running away from me like they have just seen a ghost! And some, are just too curious.. The villages deep in the Karamajong land don't get a lot of visitors from the outside. I find these encounters fascinating. (: #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬
