The IMANI photography project was established by Spanish photographer, Álvaro Peña Conde to support indigenous people living in extreme poverty in the Mang’ola Valley in northern Tanzania. The project was inspired by Spanish priests, Pepe Aguilar and Miguel Angel Lozano from Urafiki Humanitarian Foundation, who have been living and helping people in Tanzania for over thirty years. The foundation has been an agent for the survival of local communities by fighting hunger and diseases, promoting education and offering support to those who need it most. The IMANI project fundraises for these causes while sharing the spirit and beauty of Mang’ola and its inhabitants, through the medium of photographs. IMANI THE BOOK was published in Arusha, Tanzania in May 2014.
