Empowered Massai Women

Commissioned by African Initiatives, this project documents the changing social structure of the Maasai arising from the empowerment of woman and education of girls. African Initiatives is an international development charity working with Maasai, Iraqw, and other indigenous communities in the challenging socio-economic landscape of northern Tanzania. My time was spent with two grassroots charities under the umbrella of African Initiatives: The Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT), and The Pastoral Women’s Council (PWC).
