Mozambique: Engaging Communities
Oxfam International has been active on the ground in working with rural and migrant communities for well over 20 years. Central to their work has been to provide access and impliment programs that address primary health care issues / food security programs and water security projects on the east coast of Africa.
The images were taken over a 1 month period in Feb 2011 covering over 1000km from Maputo in the south to Beira in the central / northern regions. The aim of the documentary was to identify individuals working within the Oxfam partnership program who are benefitting from the community programs.
The projects implimented specificaly targeted women in villages and migrant workers who come to cities for a better life.

'Mozambique presents many challenges, huge distances needed to be covered, the heat and under resourced clinics, farms and communities all compound to make such tours challenging but thoroughly enjoyable. As an African myself im not intimidated or romanticized in how i approach our shared issues.Ive grown up as a photographer in rural communities across southern and eastern Africa. What we need are stories from across the board that motivate for change, that inspire funding partners to understand the continual need for partnership.'
