Education, Medicine, Humana People to People, Rajasthan, India, November, 2009

In this image is a team of women dedicated to the development of medical care in this and other villages.

Standing in the back is an assistant to the medical specialist seated in front. The taller, young woman is a student and lives in the home with this courtyard. She has been photographed by me for the past six years and is as gentle as a person can be.

The other two women work with Humana People to People India, and do so diligently without being asked. One is training at the moment, and is from the south of India. The other woman associated with Humana People to People India, with her hair covered,  has known me since my first days in India.

Here they pose for a group portrait after administering medical care to women from this village, focusing mainly on early childhood development and the care of the pregnant woman. They review various topics ranging from nutrition to preventive care. Women leading the development of care for women.

In this beautiful home also lives the teacher for the now closed Humana People to People school for girls, the mother of the taller girl in the picture. She has also known me for over six years and always treats me to a wonderful meal in her home.

I cannot put into words how this family has affected me. The work continues on their behalf.
