A man sits in front of a 'feces pit' on a children's playground. Due to lack of sanitation, water and safety in the area, these kinds of locations are often used as toilets.
A Portrait of EPAKO

The collaboration of a twenty year long ‘twinning’ between two municipalities (Drachten, The Netherlands and Gobabis, Namibia) came to an end. This photographic essay told the story of the people living in the slums of Epako in Gobabis and the bygone projects -all linked to the SDG's- the two cities had worked on. The images portrayed here are a selection of the entirety of the project, which was exhibited in the town hall of Drachten, throughout Gobabis and in the form of a limited edition booklet.
