Is Saturday I got to photograph an amazing and fun event with friends!
My American friend, Nicole, and a group of her friends from church, gathered in Nicole’s husbands village. We had boxes and boxes of clothes and toys to give to the kids and some food for the families.
Nicole’s group of friends work at a local factory (Featival) that makes clothes and children’s costumes. They were able to get donated all the leftovers that had small flaws in them.
The families would come through the line, one by one, to receive their things. The kids were so excited! After they received their clothes and costumes, many of them put them on so we could take photos of them!!
They will continue to do this once a week, traveling to other villages in Tana.
I was so happy and excited to be a part of this day, to see the joy in the kids faces and to capture those moments.
After the event, we found a spot for having a picnic. As we were eating, we looked up and saw all these kids walking towards us, all in their costumes!!
Thank you Nicole for inviting me!!
