ActionAid II

Tanzania, May 2009

The Global Campaign for Education has focused its campaign for 20009 on literacy and the power of words in overcoming poverty. Action Aid, supported by Comic Relief have chosen to track the lives of four young girls in a remote community in Tanzania to highlight the challenges of getting a quality education.

Part of this project has involved documenting the daily lives of the girls, and the role they have to play in the day to day running of their families homesteads.
