Yuṣawiruna – Photographing for Human Rights

In 2014, the NCF started the Yuṣawiruna – Photographing for Human Rights Project. NCF and seven unrecognized village committees founded several women groups that are documenting both their lives in the villages and the continual human rights violations perpetrated by the state. The participants receive a personal camera and NCF coordinators conduct monthly photography workshops, as well as discussions about human rights and accessibility to governmental services in the villages. Women present the photographs that they took since the last workshop and accompany each other to take new ones. Through these activities, participants forge connections through their response to a shared experience across all of their villages.
