She is one of those luckiest little girls who can go to school. Education in the Gambia is a costly experience for most families. While girls had very little chances to be sent to school in the past, the government is now paying part of their schools fees. With many single parent families in the Gambia and very high school fees, single mothers can rarely send more than one child to school.

Photographer: Aude-Emilie Dorion (Paris, France) Registered
Freelance photographer and writer Aude-Emilie Dorion was born in France in 1980. Sensitive to the effect of globalization on modern cultures and the inequity of the world’s economic development, tensions and transformations are at the heart of her creative work. Working in the live performance industry, photography from time to time became the best vector of communication. Aude-Emilie loves artistic photography but has always been attracted by social documentary and photojournalism. When the Art becomes more social and political it reaches one of its primary functions: raising public awareness, acting as a catalyst for political changes.
