I was asked by FHI 360  in collaboration with Women Deliver, Girls’ Globe and Johnson & Johnson to contribute some of my photos from my upcoming book: Faces of Courage to present during this year’s UN General Assembly opening session the week of September 22-26 in New York. They are creating an online campaign centered around the Twitter hashtag #MDG456Live to draw attention to how the development community is addressing women’s and girls’ issues related to MDGs 4, 5 and 6 at the UN General Assembly. I am very proud to be part of this effort. Here are a set of bookmarks that will be distributed:

Successful Kickstarter Campaign to Publish Faces of Courage:Intimate Portraits of Women on the Edge

Posted in Uncategorized on September 18, 2014 by tuschman

On July 30th, I concluded a successful Kickstarter Campaign to publish Faces of Courage: Intimate Portraits of Women on the Edge. I am extremely grateful and indebted to the over 500 backers who supported me in helping me disseminate over a decade of work on the lack of basic human rights of women and girls in the developing world and the efforts being made to empower them.
