"Because she is a human being, because she inspires me, because I see how she suffers."
In the summer of 2016, I travelled to Dadaab Refugee Camp in Kenya - the largest refugee camp in the world - with the International Rescue Committee to photograph and interview refugee community workers. These individuals - refugees from Somalia - strive, work, fight for gender equality and the end of violence against women and girls in their community. Facing chastisement and threats, they provide life-saving services to survivors of violence, advocate for the rights of women and girls, and spark transformation. Here, they share thoughts about their work, life in the camp, and what drives them to do this work.
