Malala and her inspiration

Afghanistan Today has published on its home page a picture I took during  the vigil for Malala Yousafzai in Birmingham. The story they are featuring – about the inspiration she has given to girls and women – is part of a series about Afghanistan and Pakistan cross-border issues. I was approached by Nick Allen, chief editor of this NGO media project, to collaborate with the photo (unfortunately, it’s not credited credit is under first pic in body of story now).

On their Twitter account, they introduce themselves: “Afghanistan Today presents journalism made in Afghanistan by local journalists. Afghanistan Today covers the other story”. Although I have never been to that part of the world, the work done by this media project seems essential to raise important current questions of the issues on this nation.
