In March 2005, I traveled with the Global Exchange delegation “Women Making Change” to Afghanistan for an Independent Study Project in photography. I was a 47-year-old re-entry student in my last semester at Arizona State University and I wanted to do something “substantial.”
While many Afghans fled during the 1979 – 1989 Soviet invasion, our guide Najib Sedeqe stayed. He provided introductions to people and organizations i.e. the Organization for Mine Clearance and Afghan Rehabilitation (OMAR) that we would not have had access to otherwise.
