Focusing on the effects

MothrChldWomensTrust, a microfinance operation founded by Dana Dakin, afforded me the opportunity to document their inspiring work , capture the visible effects of their effort, and share it with the world.

The photographic essay that I created and produced captures my visual impressions of the results of WomensTrust investment in the community of Pokuase. The images attempt to tell a story that transitions between the harsh reality of poverty to the far horizons of hope. The images, taken throughout Ghana, are my attempt to illustrate an environment of pervasive poverty and  the heart and soul of opportunity.

We have assembled a book documenting the results of the WomensTrust initiative and it is available for purchase. To learn more, contact Mark Tuschman.
