About the Cover Photo

Think Global’s centerpiece photo, A Peace of Land, was taken by a young Rwandan girl named Germaine, who took part in a special photography workshop collaboratively sponsored by Gafotozi (meaning “little photographer”) and A Peace of Life. Germaine and other village children, orphaned by genocide and disease, were empowered during the workshop to select meaningful issues, such as AIDS or hunger, and tell their stories through photography. In this photo of a young boy in a field of green, Germaine chose to focus on peace and the environment. Thousands of miles away, while developing the Think Global website, DUS team members discovered Germaine’s photo, contacted the founders of Gafotozi and A Peace of Life, and developed new friendships as well as an important awareness of the dreams and challenges of these very special children.
