I can’t stop thinking about Nani’s talk about how she started PEKKA and thinking as woman head of household. Photography is used widely as part of the program but not touted as “participatory photography” or viewing of the photos that much by outside (is it partly because they are older women?). Photography used as storytelling device since many of the women are illiterate. She also said that the majority of the women photograph positive things in their lives. Also of interest to me that even though most of the site is in English, the captions for the photos are not.
