Hello Tuesday, August 14

Today is Day 7 and the groups are splitting up today to spent time both in the field and in lab. Jim, Russell, and Steve are working with kids from Reencontro, who are continuing their photography work in Maputo neighborhoods. The UNICEF activistas are meeting with Joanne and me at the Maputo Holiday Inn for a computer workshop session. We plan to give the young activists a survey of the technology tools and we are using every day in support of the project. By giving them hands-on exposure to our photo, video, audio, and web workflows, we want to inspire them to think about the different ways they might choose to communicate their message. Don't be surprised if you start seeing them blogging and posting video interactives on the website in the next day or two.

When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
