NEW: Rwanda work up on the website
These images and more from the series can now be seen here on the website. They tell the story of Beatrice and her family who live in the mainly rural district of Shingiro in northern Rwanda, close to the border with Uganda and the DRC. Beatrice contends with bringing up a family of six children with no electricity and limited access to water, by farming the land in a mainly female co-operative. Through the work of the charity ActionAid she has been able to organise the village and take a lead role in the co-operative, whilst the local school, built by ActionAid, has meant a better chance for her children.
