ONE WEEK: AFRICA
RWANDA / UGANDA
Photographer, writer, avid traveler, and now author, Ty Jennings, takes us along as he fulfills a lifelong dream of traveling to Africa, a childhood promise unfulfilled. In the Summer of 2016, Ty was invited to follow the founders of two charitable organizations changing the way humanitarian aid is defined and delivered. With unprecedented access, Ty spent ONE WEEK traveling over 800 km by van, minibus, boat and bush plane between Rwanda and Uganda as each founder conducted meetings, checked in on the status of their projects, and paved the way for future endeavors. Seeing elephants, hippos and other safari life along the way.
