Daily Foto: Friends Clapping for her first Photo in Ghana

NEW Phodographer Maia Pelleg in Ghana, April 2010

Maia Pelleg enthusiastically embraced Dog Meets World while volunteering as a Kiva Fellow in Ghana. Her reverence and respect for all she met were evident in her descriptions. She wrote about this woman saying “Yaa, meaning Thursday-born, has never before had a photograph taken by herself. She laughs throughout the whole process, looking at the members of her microfinance borrower group for support. They laugh too, and when the photo is printed it is passed around to over 30 women to admire. Some even clap in honor of Yaa.

Sharing our joy with friends is special and a one’s first photograph, is like tangible joy. Dog Meet World leaves permanent affirmations and plants seeds of peace.
