Great stories come from ZUMA Press this week. From Tanzania to Haiti via the USA and Syria, the photographers of Zuma bring us an amazing array of great photojournalism.
Zimbabwe born photographer Kate Holt, who’s work on humanitarian issues mostly touching women and children is of incredible force, went into a quest to find out what happened to the promise of affordable education to all as promised in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights of 1948. More particularly, she aimed her lenses to the condition of a group of girls in Tanzania to show the challenges encountered when trying to offer quality education to everyone . School fees have dropped in many countries, allowing some of the world’s poorest children to access school – the result is that 40 million more children have been able to access school in the last 8 years.Kate’s work is a not a desperate cry for help but rather an insightful and hopeful look at how the world’s leader’s decision to bring eduction to all by 2015 can face challenges when brought to the crude reality of certain parts of the world.
