Fatimah 6 years old, born in Boko Haram captivity to a mother who died during a raid. After she gained freedom,she spents time at her extended family home in Borno, North East Nigeria, scanning pictures of a comic book 'Archie', hoping that one day she will go to school. //
Boko Haram , a terrorist group operating in the North - East Nigeria abducted some girls from schools and their communities. While in captivity, the abducted girls were made to spend several hours daily in training sessions to radicalize them against secular education. The intensity of the radicalization program the girls were exposed to in captivity can best be grasp by the experiences of some of the free captors. The girls recalled that the radicalization sessions were endless, their aim was to erase the memory of school: the rhymes, alphabets and letters the girls have learnt. "We were abducted for the choice we made - to go to school". Amina muttered, who was abducted with 13 other girls when they were trekking to their homes from school. Pressure was mounted on the girls to hate western education, the terror group believe it will teach gjrls independent thinking and to challenge authority which is against Islam.
Some girls gained freedom when they failed to detonate the bombs strapped to their waists and surrendered to security authorities, while some gained freedom after military raids in their camps.
These girls persevered in the face of terror, economic hardship, Islamic extremism, cultural and gender bias to dare to return to school and become educated amid grim realities.
El frío, el sol que calienta, el cielo azul, el olor a flores...los recuerdos son un tesoro✨
VIAS DE SP
E para finalizar... uma dupla exposição (com longa exposição na segunda foto - a da avenida) misturando a calmaria e a cor dos prédios grafitados, com a correria da Avenida 9 de Julho, centro de São Paulo.
A verdadeira mistura de SP, caos pela cidade cinza, mas paz em alguns cantos coloridos dela. (sim, clichê, mas verdade) 📸Canon Elan IIe
