World Teachers Day

10 months ago

Teachers are arguably the most important members of our society. They give children purpose, set them up for success as citizens of our world, and inspire in them a drive to do well and succeed in life. In my years of photography I have met some of the most amazing people who are teachers, changing the life of children in their communities. 

For #WorldTeachersDay 5th October, I would like to celebrate these special people… stay tuned for their stories this week! 

🌟I met 30 year old Ndikumana Imelde while on assignment for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency in Tanzania. A refugee herself from Burundi she teaches pre-school children at Jugudi Primary School which opened in 2015 at Nyarugusu Refugee Camp in Kasulu District, western Tanzania. Without a classroom she has to take her class outside. Despite this she is such a positive person: “We don’t have any walls where I can put up pictures so it is a little more difficult for my children to understand, but through singing, dancing and smiles I do my best each day to teach them and make them happy.”
