Following email is from a friend of mine. I would appreciate if you can contribute !

I will send you pictures of the event which you can show in your profile.. Plus credit would be given and your contact details would be with every picture


I am a fourth year student in the International Development and
Globalization program at the University of Ottawa (Canada).

I have been thinking, for quite long time, of creating an event in my
university, to inform people of what is going on around the world
regarding poverty, disease, human rights, etc. Therefore I thought I can
do an exhibition, or series of ones, of pictures taken in the
underdeveloped countries (Latin America, Africa or Asia) that will show
the reality in these countries. I truly think that a picture can deliver a
stronger message that sticks to people’s minds and it is a great way to
promote development.

The tentative title of the exhibition is “Eye on the Challenges of
Development”. There might be a slight change in it.

If I collect a satisfying number of pictures, I am planning on doing the
exhibition during the “International Culture and Development Week” at
University of Ottawa, in the beginning of February 2011. It is an annual
series of activities and events promoting International Development.

The specific topics that I am looking to exhibit during that particular
day are:

1-Food Security.
3-Violations of Human Rights.
5-Environmental Challenges (Disasters, Waste Management, Pollution and etc.).
6- Culture/ Global citizenship

Finally, Copyrights will be strictly respected in this exhibition.

I would like to collect as many pictures as possible to be able to
properly select the ones that best reflect the issues I am trying to
exhibit. Therefore, I would like to know if you are interested on helping
me collect pictures to promote development.

I would like to thank you for your consideration and I am looking forward
to hearing from you.

Please excuse my long email.

With regards,

Nadia Hadj Mohamed.
