CAN YOU SEE ME? Ponduck, Age 9
Ponduck has lived her entire life in the Kakuma refugee camp, in Turkana District in Kenya. Her South Sudanese parents arrived there before her birth. She awaits a distribution of porridge outside the camp’s UNICEF-supported primary school. Increased regional instability and the ongoing Horn of Africa drought crisis have significantly increased student enrolment in the camp. By mid-2012, over 3,100 children and youths were attending the school, which only has 14 classrooms.

“Radical change remains a possibility within us right up until our last breath. The greatest tragedy of human existence is not to live in time, in both senses of that phrase.” ~Christian Wiman
