Photo Stories: African Women and Kids
Affected by AIDS Share their Lives

Carla

15-year-old Carla lost both of her parents to AIDS in 2003 when she was 11 years old. At first, Carla and her three siblings went to live with their uncle, who took them to live with an aunt, where they continue to live today. Carla and her siblings receive support from their uncle, while their school fees, some food, and clothing is paid for by Reencontro.

Carla is bright and ambitious, and dedicated to her studies. Her dream? To become a doctor or a lawyer. She liked participating in The House Is Small because it helped occupy her time while on holiday from school. Through the project she learned that there are different types of photography and how to tell stories through photos. Through her photography, she would like for people to see how she lives, how she suffers, and how she is happy.

What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they donít visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
