It’s been two months since we started again with the #MiradasDeTanzania Exhibition and we still haven’t told you well how everything came about from the beginning… I’m going to try to summarize, it won’t be easy but I will… But first I’m going to introduce myself very briefly, I’m Bárbara Bravo volunteer at Mama Kevina Hope Centre, a centre for children with disabilities in Same (Tanzania). I am not a photographer and this exhibition was born out of respect and humility towards photography professionals.
In 2019 I decided to make a radical change to my life or take a break, I don’t really know what I was looking for but what was clear to me is that I didn’t want to continue with the work rhythm that I’ve been doing since I started my professional career as a publicist. In May 2019, my last professional relationship ended and I decided that it was my time, now or never. So I rescued one of my dreams: to volunteer in Africa. One night in June I started looking for NGO’s and I came across Africa Direct.
And what can I tell you about Africa Directo, which is an incredible NGO, everything that is donated arrives and I can guarantee it. In addition, the human treatment is wonderful, they care about you and take care of you in an indescribable way. I can only say that without them it would not have been and would not be possible to be here, so once again I must say: THANK YOU!
