Phodographer is Ariane Kirtley in the Azawak region of Niger, West Africa, April 2010

Dog Meets World teamed up with Ariane, founder of AmmanImman, Water is Hope to bring very first pictures and clean water to the people of this very desolate, impoverished and remote region of Niger. Here the children are patiently watching and waiting for Ariane to print the first pictures anyone has ever seen of themselves. Imagine the amazement. More to come!
