MARIGUINE IN MUKURU SLUM
Children walking to school. Judy (girl in foreground) and her family have lived in the same room since they moved to Mariguine. Originally a shack with four rooms, shared with other families, their living quarters shrunk several years ago when the landlord converted it to eight rooms. Then, in 2004, a fire destroyed the entire settlement, including their shack and possessions.

CHILDREN IN RURAL SOUTH AFRICA
This spot is immediately in front of the fenced-in informal settlement; children are not supposed to stray too far. It is a typical group of varied aged children, some of whom are siblings, as older children must keep an eye on the younger ones while at play.

DOCUMENTARY PROJECT IN KENYA
Life for Samburu women is very challenging. Women are the property of their husbands, are not allowed to own anything and have no rights. They carry all the daily household burdens including looking for water and firewood, caring for their children, building and maintaining their homes, tending to livestock, and cooking. Violence against women is socially acceptable and often encouraged.

CHILDREN IN GUATEMALA
The photo was taken in 2013 in the town of Chuiquel, which is in the district of Patzun, to the east of Lake Atitlan. It is considered to be in the highlands of Guatemala with a very large concentration of indigenous Maya. The languages spoken in Chuiquel are Kaqchiquel and Spanish. Many students come into primary school with limited comprehension of Spanish, as the language at home will have been Kaqchiquel. The wood in the basket would have been cut from the surrounding forests and carried in large bundles on the backs of older, male family members. The young girls are carrying it into the house, most likely for cooking. The clothes they are wearing reflect traditional patterns that identify the particular area they live in. Young girls, and women, still wear these woven garments although boys and men generally wear Western clothing.
