Rural Life in the City Age is a visceral and visual photographic essay about the suffering of people in the rural areas of Namibia. It tells the stories of those who lose their lands and ways of life due to the urbanisation throughout the country. Hunting for survival and living in the wild is no longer permitted. As a result, many tribes migrate to the urban areas, with dreams for a better future. But with no education, working experience and money, most find themselves ending up in one of the many city-sized slums located on the outskirts of Namibia's urbanised world.
One of the important goals in 2010 from the Millennium Development Goals stated that every child should be able to attend school and have access to education by 2015.
