Rwandan Girl

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by ellie hobbs

While working in a disabled village in Rwanda I got the chance to meet some extraordinary people. This particular child, Alise, was deaf and mute but incredibly capable and inspiring. It still astounds me how a parent can abandon such a beautiful young girl purely due to a disability.

Location: Tendezi - Rwanda
