My photographs taken for the organisation DelAgua feature in an article, “Building health and empowering women with cookstoves”, in The Upstream Journal.
The Upstream Journal is a magazine about human rights and social justice. Since its launch in January 1986, it has told the stories of people and communities facing poverty, oppression and marginalization with the goal of giving them, to the extent we could, a voice.
I documented DelAgua’s Tubeho Neza (“Live Well”) project in Rwanda, capturing how they are working in partnership with the Government of Rwanda, with the goal of providing innovative, high quality performance stoves to 2.3 million rural households. The project is one of the largest cookstove programmes of its kind in the world and is addressing critical climate and health challenges at scale and for the long term.
The photographs were published in a book and went on to win a number of awards including being shortlisted for the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards.
