Health, education, job creation, food security: a promise of change with communities in Uganda

From war and the HIV/AIDS epidemic to a new model of reception: a photo reportage portrays how Northern Uganda has changed together with AVSI. With a glance on the new generations.

My name is Esther Ruth Mbabazi. I’m a photographer from Uganda and my work explores different social issues.

AVSI is celebrating 50 years of working in communities globally. As a photographer in Uganda, I was asked to document their work in the Northern part of the country.

AVSI works across different sectors like health, education, livelihoods, capacity building, infrastructure, with education and personal development of the individual at the center of their work.

During this documentation, I got to meet many people whose lives have been greatly impacted through AVSI’s work. Individuals and communities who have been accompanied and supported along their journeys.

I met Doctors and hospitals that have worked with AVSI to better serve their communities. Learners and teachers whose capacities have been built, and their school environments improved by AVSI.

I met widows whose lives have been transformed to self-sustenance. And communities whose social cohesion as well as their access to social services improved through constructions of roads and bridges.

Through this documentation, I met individuals, protagonists in their development and that of their communities.

During this documentation, I got to meet many people whose lives have been greatly impacted through AVSI’s work. Individuals and communities who have been accompanied and supported along their journeys.
