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

Ariane Kirtley founded a project to bring clean water to a desperately needy area of Niger where 500,000 people live on the brink. She says “While conducting my work with Amman Imman (Water is Hope), I document everything I do with photos. I have always wanted to give back the photos I take, and have never before had the opportunity before now. Thank you, Dog Meets World, for giving me that opportunity. Little Foto was a big hit, and has become the mascot for Amman Imman as well!”
