The Hope of Malians. A green man painted with a campaign slogan during a rally for opposition candidate Soumaïla Cissé, who is running against the incumbent Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta for the presidency. Malians will head to the polls on July 29. Security, unemployment, education and health are key issues. Islamic militants took over swathes of northern Mali in 2012 before French forces pushed them back. Mali, once seen as a bastion of West African democracy, is now home to one of the largest United Nations peacekeeping missions and French troops are stationed there. #mali #westafrica #africa #elections #politics

I’ve been doing a lot of figure drawing this past year to hone my skills, but this is my favorite kind of work: telling stories about people and culture. This one’s from my most recent trip to Guinea, West Africa, where I stayed in a small village along the Niger River for a few months. .

“Le Vieux Fermier” (the old farmer)
14x17 pencil on bristol
In the villages in Guinea, much of daily life revolves around tasks related to subsistence farming. Rice, manioc, sweet potatoes, yams, and many other dietary staples are grown in the village. The work is hard, and it is not uncommon to see both young and old at work in the fields. Here, a man sorts through beans that will be sifted and then pounded with the mortar and pestle, and made into that evening’s stew…

Head over to Matooun.com and catch up on key items from President Weah's Address.

1. There is a comprehensive development plan being formulated to address the economic problems in Liberia. This comes about five month after President Weah took office.

2.We have to restructure our economy. We are still importing more than we export, and our economy is greatly effected when global prices changes.

3.Because we mostly exports raw materials, Liberia might be effected by the current global trade war.

My dads presence was strong the moment I landed in Benin. There were too many hearts to take pictures of. They showed up in puddles, leaves, rocks, trash and even jewelry. I'll share two of the most important signs from my dad. The first was on our safari. We stopped for lunch at a small resort in the middle of nowhere. There was a man selling local items in a tiny little hut. Sarah was helping me do some bargaining because she spoke French and knew who to get a good deal too. As I was buying a few items I looked down last minute and saw one single heart ring among all the other items. There were no other rings for sale but for the one I found with a heart on it.
My second sign from him brought me to tears. It happened on the start of our field trip and it wasn't a heart. Anyone who knew my dad knows that he would always look at people in the eye, smile and say hi every time he passed someone on the street. The day before our trip sarah mentioned that the people of Benin may look like they are mean mugging you but that they aren't, all you have to do is smile and say hi. So the whole time we were in Benin we did that. It was the most beautiful thing seeing them go from a serious face to a huge smile. So as we were driving to our field trip and seeing all the smiles, I felt my dads presence so strong. I broke down in tears quietly in my seat and smiled. Thank you dad. ❤️ I love and miss you so much. #signsfromabove #hearts #finditineverything #benin #westafrica #missyoudad

This cutie was the highlight of my day! I'm impressed how Ghanaians are smiling and welcoming , even the baby Ghanaians!
روز دوازدهم 🇬🇭
دوشنبه است و انتظار دارم آفیس شلوغ پلوغ باشه. حدسم درسته، جناب رئیس برگشته و همینجور از چپ و راست ویزیتور می یاد براش. دفتر شرکت کوچیکه، و من به همراه رئیس و دو نفر دیگه از کارمندهای ثابت تو یک اتاق می شینیم.
قراره این هفته روی برنامه ریزی یه کورس کارآفرینی آموزشی کار کنم، اما گیج و ویجم. این کار زیاد تخصص من نیست، اما ایده ی کار جالبه، و به هرحال می تونم یه کمکی باشم. اما اعتراف می کنم این مدل کارهای ادمینستریشن و اداری اصلا باب دلم نیست. با رئیس دو تا جلسه می ذارم تا بحث کنیم روی پروژه. البته شما خیال نکنین از اون میتینگهای شیک که می شینیم به صورت متمرکز روی یک موضوع بحث می کنیم. در حین بحث، آقای رئیس حداقل پنج تا تلفن جواب می ده، سه بار با دو نفر کارمند دیگه صحبت می کنه و دو بار کار اینترن‌ها رو راه می اندازه. کلافه می شم ولی چیزی نمی گم. به هر حال باید قبول کنم که سیستم کاری و اداری اینجا خیلی متفاوت با چیزیه که من بهش عادت دارم.
.
🌴امروز هم کوتاه بود و در کپشن جا برای اظهار فضل دارم 😎 گفتم راجع به کار داوطلبی می گم. قضیه اینجاست که بنده وقتی درسم تموم شد، دلم می خواست کمی از کامفورت زونم خارج بشم، و قبل از شروع کار جدی، تجربه ی یک زندگی متفاوت رو داشته باشم. مطمئنم که احتمالا این آخرین بار در زندگیمه که نه درس دارم، نه کار. آقای الف هم از این ایده بسی استقبال کرد و پشتیبانم بود و گشتیم با هم دنبال کار داوطلبی که بهش علاقه داشته باشیم، و غنا دو تا موقعیت خوب پیدا شد. اینم بگم که واقعا وقت گذاشتیم و حداقل شش ماه جدی دنبالش بودیم. دلیل کار داوطلبی انجام دادن هم واسه من صرفا یک پروژه شخصیه، نه قصدش رو دارم و نه فکر می کنم که با این کار کوچیک قراره دنیا کن فیکون شه و من می رم که همه مشکلات رو حل کنم. صرفا اندوختن تجربه است و بس.
.
راستی. امروز دوتا اتفاق دیگه هم افتاد. خبر خوب اینکه آبمون وصل شد! هوووورااااااا. آخ که انقدر خوشحالم که می شه دوش درست حسابی گرفت! و اتفاق بد اینکه کتاب راهنمای غرب آفریقا ی عزیزمون رو گم کردم. آقای الف هم از دستم شاکیه 😢حقم داره. البته خودم خیلی بیشتر غصه دارم. حالا اینجا از کجا کتاب راهنما پیدا کنم خب؟
