Village Community Banking (Preview)- Tanzania 2011
I’m in Tanzania right now working on a few different projects with the Norwegian Church Aid.
Here is a small selection of images from my time here so far. These are from a photoessay I am putting together about VICOBA – Village Community Banking.
“VICOBA is structured in such a way that poor people, especially those in the rural areas, are organized in groups and trained in various skills so as to build up their capacity to fight against poverty. VICOBA holds a strong belief that even poor people have skills, capabilities and abilities which when unleashed and utilized effectively can help them to attain and improve their economic development and social welfare.” – VICOBA.org
I’ll be posting more when I get the chance, with more photos and more information about VICOBA and the beautiful people making it all happen.
