Photographer's Note

This girl I met in the middle of nowhere in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest accompanied by her mother and two other women. Beautiful people. Some days later I saw a poster in a local village encouraging school girls to report sexual misuse and violence. The poster was openly talking about girls having problems to attend school, fearing they would become a victim of violence and infected by AIDS. UNESCO runs a lot of programs to educate women to fight against violence by reporting it to authorities as well as to attend women's groups led by UNESCO facilitators and to learn how to react and how to overcome the fear. Conditions just hard to imagine to anyone from the more developed World.
