One year after my first visit to this country
I went back to Northern Mozambique in July
This time I had two photographic work assignments: First
for Helvetas - a Swiss development organization and second
for SNV - a Dutch development organization.
1. For Helvetas: documenting village life
in the rural areas of the Nampula province [District Mecuburi]
and in some villages located in the province of Cabo Delgado
[chemical brothers, village
people, mecuburi, ceremony, mitutumi]
2. For SNV: documenting various stages of
cashew processing in Mogincual, Nampula Province and the
work of a women's association in Angoche giving micro-credits
to members in order to set up small businesses.

Apart from these assignments I spent a couple
of days in Nampula City and Pemba and took some photos
on my own account. Just for fun.
Listed below are links to the sources of some
of the subtitles.
Some statistical data presented in the subtitles need to be
updated, however, results of the 2007 census are not published
yet. However, even if the numbers are not accurate - they may
give a good impression about what kind of country Mozambique
is, according to Western standards.
I hope you enjoy this site.
