Andreea Câmpeanu – A women’s world in Sudan
“While travelling around Sudan for six months during last year, I realized that women were the ones doing most of the work around the house, even the harder one, while also being victims of gender based violence including FGM (female genital mutilation), or early marriages (followed by school dropout). Still, I found them incredibly strong and their desire to live and learn was very inspiring. This is part of a work in progress I hope to be able to continue.”
