Human Rights in Focus

Photographer: Jayne Lee

Namaste!, by Jayne Lee

Location: Lamjung, Nepal

In the summer of 2006, I traveled to Nepal. One of my goals was to advocate the economic rights of the rural population, who were saving as little as $0.25 CDN a month. I had the opportunity to work with villagers in the Lamjung district to promote micro-financing and legally organize co-operatives. This is a portrait of a participant of the program. She is greeting us in the customary Nepali way, saying "Namaste!" and putting her hands together.
