Ancient tribes living traditional lifestyles across Africa are facing extreme poverty and their survival is becoming increasingly difficult. The legacy of these tribes is disappearing quickly. The IMANI Photography project was established to support indigenous people living in extreme poverty in the Mang’ola Valley in northern Tanzania. The project was inspired by the Urafiki Humanitarian Foundation, which has been 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 raises funds for these causes while sharing the spirit and beauty of the Mang'ola Valley and its inhabitants, through photographs. The project showcased multiple photo exhibitions in Tanzania and in Spain. IMANI THE BOOK was published in Arusha, Tanzania in June 2014.
Below are some images of the IMANI project and a preview of the book.
