Kilimanjaro girl and her umbrella
DESCRIPTIONThis sweet little girl, from my tribe- the Chagga people from the lower elevations of mount Kilimanjaro- was on her way to school on a very rainy morning, carrying the local umbrella- a water yam leaf...
Her mom covered her with a kanga- the traditional women wear- to protect her from getting her school uniform all wet, and I couldn't resist asking her to stop long enough for me to take the photo. I f I win, I will use the award money to pay for her school fees.

I grew up in the highest village on the lower elevations of the famous mountain Kilimanjaro. My picture is of a sweet mountain girl, of the Chagga tribe, on her way to school on a very rainy morning, holding her local leaf umbrella.
