In Ethiopia using the word right, as in human right, women right etc is not allowed to use anymore in Ethiopia.

Despite the repressive dictatorship not allowing organizations working with human rights, the civil society organizations in Ethiopia has delivered innovative services to the marginalized and underserved people and communities in cooperation with Swedish support. The cooperation emphasizes human rights, gender equality and poverty reduction. The Swedish program has, through nine Civil Society organizations and so called umbrella modality, reached more than 150 smaller and evolving civil organizations throughout Ethiopia.

Through individual interviews on the ground among affected people the book seeks to illustrate the conditions for people living under challenging circumstances in the communities and in the country.

The book where I have written text and shooting all the photography, was a assignment from the Swedish embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
