This project was photographed while on assignment with Project HEAL Foundation. Project HEAL is a non-profit organization that was founded to help empower impoverished children rural parts of Ethiopia. HEAL stands for Health, Education, Achievement, Love. Love for the Children Academy opened its doors to 65 children in August 2016 and had been growing quickly ever since. The students receive an education, are provided breakfast and lunch while at the Academy as well as having access to any needed healthcare for themselves or their families. This series is a glimpse into some of the home visits of students and their families.
