At the crossroads between journalism, art and charity
This is a project of Anaïs Lopéz (photography), Anisleidy Martínez (camera) and Paulien Bakker (text).
It started with the decision of the Rwandan government to close all orphanages in the country – an idea that can count on a lot of support from aid organizations. Yet in highly directed and very poor Rwanda, no one has an idea how this works out for the children in question.
In addition to various journalistic stories and an art film (In my dreams I want to become a tourist), we also raised money so that a few children can at least get their high school diploma. As soon as they have finished primary school, they go to boarding school. There they will finally receive three meals a day.
