    The conflict in South Sudan has crashed so many dreams. Here, a girl from Pariginya refugee settlement stands in front of her primary school classroom. Pagirinya has been open since last July when the violence in South Sudan began, causing nearly 2,000 people to flee across the border into Uganda each day, 65% of them under 18 years. @unrefugees is currently building three schools to accommodate the steady influx of students.

    Two women are silhouetted as they walk past a burning bush in Awasi village, Soroti, located in eastern Uganda. Soroti is going through an uncharacteristic climate variation in recent times. While extreme temperatures are normal in this part of the country, most of 2016 had an extended dry season. As a result, farmer's plans were disrupted, crops dried up, animals continue to feed less because of limited pastures. The projections aren't healthy either. A continuation of the current prolonged drought is expected to cause more damage. Already, government has warned of an impending food shortage in Soroti and the surrounding districts, asking people to plan carefully.

    Unscrambling Africa; My friends @jaydabliu @joshkisamwa @lulukitololo and @truthslinger are making a road trip Across Africa with the purpose of exploring what defines urbanity across the continent. The team will see and document what these cities look like, meet the people that reside in them, interact with the sub-cultures and photograph the built environment of these cities. They will be traveling by road for 73 days, 15000km from Kenya through 10 countries (Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique) photographing through 13 cities. At the end of it, they will make a photo book and a few other amazing stuff to share from the trip. But they need your support to accomplish this amazing mission. Moral or financial support are welcome. Read more about the project here and support them if you can.
