CPAR is a proud partner of the Transformations 2017 OCIC photojournalism initiative
A small OCIC delegation will visit Bunda District, Tanzania in order to learn firsthand about the ways that CPAR, local government bodies, community members and partner NGOs are working together to make a difference.
This year the focus of the initiative is to deepen understanding of and dialogue related to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development by highlighting the Rubana River & Wetland Rehabilitation and the Junior Farmer Field School and Life Skills in the thematic areas of conservation agriculture (central theme), food security, climate change, Resilient agriculture and youth as leaders in sustainable development.
With the support of Allan Lissner, an experienced photojournalist, OCIC will seek to document and share stories of partnership, resilience and positive change with CPAR donors and the Canadian public. The stories are meant to enhance dialogue and understanding of how international partnerships address complex global challenges.
Upon their return, OCIC will conduct a series of virtual and small-scale photo exhibits in select communities across the province over a one year period beginning February 2017. The overarching objective of this initiative is to help:
1. Translate policy questions and goals, and the SDGs into reality and the human story.
2. Situate CPARs work into broader discussions of civil society work and priorities.
3. Connect Canadians to CPARs content and illustrate how it fits in their own lives.
