Negen maanden hebben statushouders op het GWL terrein (postcode 1051) gewoond. Bewoners van het GWL terrein hebben gezorgd voor een warm welkom door de inrichting van de woonruimtes, door buddy’s te zijn en door activiteiten te organiseren. Intussen werkten de statushouders aan hun inburgering, onder andere via taalles en door een baantje te zoeken. Toen de statushouders een permanente ruimte kregen aangeboden hielpen bewoners van 1051 met de verhuizing.
A second serie of every day life in Sekota, Ethiopia
Living and working in Sekota for almost a year in 2012-13 gave me the opportunity to get acquainted to many people. By the end of my stay I organized the first photo exhibition ever in Sekota. People came to see the images. Altough most of them thought their life was not very interesting. The photographs from the exhibition are still there in Sekota.
