World Vision Today editors invited staff around the world to spend July 20, 2000 photographing activities in their region. Their mission: capture the soul of World Vision.
In South Africa, Winnie Ogana was there when a sponsored child woke up in the morning and stayed with her until she finished her homework by lamplight and crawled back in bed. Faustina Boakye began by photographing devotions which precede every workday at the World Vision Ghana office. In Indonesia, Hendro Suwito’s camera was soaked by splashing fish at an aquafarm project. Saman Kariyawasam’s team in Sri Lanka worked from 3:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., sustained only by biscuits.
