Programme Manager Jane Martin and freelance facilitator Ben Thomas have recently completed the workshops for pastoral children in the Somali region of Ethiopia.
Working with Save the Children UK (SCF)as part of their Young Lives Project, PhotoVoice facilitator Venetia Dearden went to Addis to train two local photographers and six children living on the outskirts of the city. Through the workshops the children documented the lives of their families and communities and produced photographs to accompany the research being carried out by SCF in the area.
