Ahadi Ya Maisha, Life's Promise International was founded by Jennifer Horton, an occupational therapist from Chicago, Ilinois. Ahadi Ya Maisha was established to offer empowerment and assistance to people with disabilities in NorthwesternTanzania. A network has been established within several Tanzanian communities to interview and identify people in need of mobility equipment. Wheelchairs, walkers and crutches are delivered to small villages and within the bush. Recipients gather at designated sites to be fitted with their new equipment. The site may be a health clinic, a school, or the home of one of the villagers.
I was invited to photograph the work of Ahadi Ya Maisha in Tanzania in 2007. I was struck by the openess and willingness of the people to be photographed. I wanted to capture the spirit of the people, the work of Ahadi Ya Maisha and the commitment of the Tanzanian citizens who participated in helping with the "Give Away".
