Women of Africa
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a personal post, a group photo that I received today by e-mail from Dakar. I was there in June for a mission of solidarity. |
And on this photo, I am with my trainees. This was taken on the last day of the training.
During 2 weeks, I helped women to learn how to use PCs, Internet, Word and Excel, essential tools in their daily life.
These women have difficult access to education, training and people like me try to give a hand in the frame of a project organised by a French NGO called Planète Urgence.
This photo reminds me so many great moments I spent with them all. They are so generous and warmful and they gave me much more than I gave them.
This is not a shot of mine but I have the agreement for the publication and don't pay attention to the quality of the picture because the light was so strong that day on the terrace of the House of Education in the district of HLM Grand Yoff in Dakar.
Here two links if you want to get more information about Planète Urgence and Risoa
And I wanted to share this here at TrekLens with you.
Please no points :)

A beautiful shot has been composed with good details. Though the load is towards left, the women of left most could be shifted to right and camera be swivelled few degrees clockwise for a balanced group. However, nice perspective has been presented here. Well done!
Thanks for sharing lovely faces.

Félicitations par ton important travail de solidarité avec les africains.
Je ne connaissais pas Planète Urgence et Risoa. (D'origine française, je connaissais Médecins Sans Frontières.)
