The United Nations (UN) has called on the international community to provide nearly $76 million to finance aerial spraying of pesticides in East Africa, where swarms of locusts continue to decimate crops and threaten food security in the region. In a tweet published yesterday, the Executive Director for the UN World Food Programme warned that if countries “do nothing” now, they will be forced to spend 15 times more money to feed the 13 million people “devastated by the loss of their crops ...

My 2019 Goals in Life and Travel

This post is probably a couple of weeks overdue, but I wasn’t mentally ready yet to tackle it. Posts like this one require a great deal of emotional energy and, frankly, I haven’t been up to it lately. But it’s something I need to do for myself, if no one else as it really does help me organize my thoughts and get ready for a new year. It’s far too easy to fall into familiar and comfortable routines, at least it is for me, but by starting out the year with a clear roadmap – or at least a solid ...

Life on the tiny island of Migingo - in pictures

A rounded rocky outcrop covered in metal shacks, Migingo Island rises out of the waters of Lake Victoria like an iron-plated turtle. The densely populated area covers barely a quarter of a hectare. Its residents are crammed into a hodge-podge of corrugated-iron homes, bars, brothels and a tiny port Continue reading...

Is This Latest Attempt To Curtail Social Media Part Of A Growing Trend?

Countries around the globe are taking notice of the impact of social media on the fabric of society itself and some responses have been less than heartening. After all, cited as the impetus for the Arab Spring to the reason Donald Trump won the presidency in the United States, social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter give people the ability to access an audience of like-minded people on a scale previously unimaginable in human history. Image via Harvey Sapir from Pexels.com. And all of...

This Nation Just Proposed Levying a Social Media Tax to Generate Revenue to Pay Down Debt

In what is probably one of the more unique maneuvers out there to raise tax revenue, the nation of Uganda is proposing a tax on social media that would amount to $USD .05 per day but which could net the government $USD 1.5 million a month to be directed towards paying down the sovereign debt – a move that would have a disproportionate effect on photographers who rely on social media as a way to promote their work. Of course, critics highlight the difficulty in tracking Ugandans' social media use...

2018: Where I’m Going, Where I Want to Go and What I Hope to Accomplish

Yes, it’s that time of year again for this particular blog post but wait, don’t start groaning. While some people may find the predictable end of the year/start of a new year posts a little formulaic, I always look forward to writing them and I hope they’re anything but predictable. For me, they’re a great way to organize my thoughts and to set priorities for the next 12 months. It’s far too easy to fall into familiar and comfortable routines, at least it is for me, but by starting out the year...

3 Reasons You’ll Want to Follow the Compassion Bloggers in Kenya

In 2008 we rounded up a group of unsuspecting bloggers and took them all the way to Uganda. We wanted them to meet the children and teens that are part of our sponsorship program. Actually, we didn’t want them to just meet these kids – we wanted them to hear their stories. And then we wanted them to share their stories with the world. These stories stirred us to act. They closed the gap on our ignorance. They reminded us that God asked us to care for the poor, the broken. Nine years and 14 t...

United to Save Lives, One Goal at a Time

For devoted soccer fans like me, the later winter months are a time filled with anticipation and excitement. In the coming weeks, my soccer club, the defending MLS Cup champion Seattle Sounders, will once again take to the pitch, as fans across the Emerald City buzz with speculative chatter. Will Clint Dempsey return to form? Will the Sounders successfully defend their title? Anything could happen, for sure. But while the fate of the Sounders' 2017 season has yet to be determined, a soccer camp...

Top 10 Instagram Posts of 2016

I'm really proud of our Instagram feed. When I scroll through the images and videos that we've shared, here's the thing I immediately notice: Faces. Instagram is full of faces. Faces of kids.

Places to see before they're gone

Photo: Göran Ingman The views and opinions expressed in this article are hers and do not necessarily reflect the official position of Matador Network. With the surprise news that Donald Trump will be the next president of the USA, it would be easy to overlook that with the news comes one of the biggest threats to the historic agreement on climate made in Paris earlier this year. Trump has previously described climate change as “fictional” and “created by the Chinese”, and has promised to “cance...

Michele Sibiloni's best photograph: a riotous house party in Kampala

‘Uganda is a conservative country. But after dark, all the animals come out – and everyone’s drunk’At first I felt guilty when I went to this party in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. I thought I should have been out taking photographs somewhere interesting instead. But when I saw the number of people there and how wild the party was, I felt good. It was a big, ornate house with a swimming pool and a beautiful garden. Everyone was having a good time, drinking and dancing to great music. I started...

These Haunting Photos Show Where Love Is Illegal Around The World

This story was originally published on December 2, 2015. Robin Hammond was working as a photographer for National Geographic in Nigeria when he learned some disturbing news: Five young men had been arrested and publicly flogged. Their crime? Being gay. "After they had been tortured and lashed with a whip, they had to hide inside the courtroom because some people gathered outside were not satisfied with the verdict. They wanted to stone them to death," Hammond told Refinery29. "Eventually, they e...
