about

This arresting and important volume documents seven African women working to overcome devastating problems in their communities. Through dazzling photographs and first-person accounts, their stories reveal the strength of the human spirit: A Tutsi woman brings together Hutu and Tutsi widows of Rwanda''s genocide. A South African teacher''s mentoring program keeps children in school. A Ugandan nun leads a dance troupe of AIDS orphans. A former teacher in Mozambique set up farming collectives to help peasants feed their families.
The world is focused on the many crises Africa faces -- "Angels in Africa" is a positive look at how individuals can foster real change.
Royalties from the sale of "Angels in Africa" are being donated to The Pendulum Project, which supports children who are affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
Beth O’Donnell’s photojournalistic work on Africa has been published internationally and exhibited in galleries across the United States. She lives in Miami. Award-winning journalist Kimberley Sevcik is a contributing writer for Rolling Stone and a contributing editor for Marie Claire. She lives in New York City.
