Photo Essay: Fighting Poverty in Marsabit

Mwangi Kirubi is a humanitarian photographer whose mission is to change perceptions of Africa through his lens. As a photographer myself, I can get behind that 100 percent. Mwangi recently visited Kenya to document the work FH is doing there and I was so moved and inspired by his images, that I had to share some of my personal favorites.

Ali Abdi Godana at the Saku Water Kiosk in Marsabit on 15th September 2017. The water kiosk is run by Saku Welfare Group for the Disabled of which Ali is the chairman.

Tume Roba, a member of Darara Self Help Group, sells groceries inside her home in Waye Godha, Sololo, Marsabit County. Formed in 2014, Darara SHG buys household items in bulk and distributes them among members. This is cheaper than individual retail purchases. Members like Tume sell excess items for a profit to boost the group’s savings.
