In many parts of the world, women are responsible for getting the water, a daily, grinding task unimaginable to most women in developed countries. UNICEF outlines what is being done to try to directly involve women in working to improve their water supply with wells and sanitation programs.
The positive association of female powers with water has a long and rich history in parts of the African continent.
Online AfroStyle Magazine brings these concepts together in an exciting, conceptual fashion vision from 2013 ‘The Story Of Aquarius’ featuring model Anai Ekalino. Photographer Natasha Kertes is behind the lens and on style also, with makeup by Pamela Sanderson Garcia.
Natasha Kertes is Russian by birth and is close friends with Sudanese Anai Ekalino. KA online wrote a detailed story about their collaboration and June 2013 show in Miami, with proceeds supporting the ‘Fund for Malaria in African Children’.
