CUSO International is a Development Aid organization, based in Ottawa, Canada. With over 50 years of providing leadership and empowerment to less fortunate communities around the world, CUSO has a well earned reputation for placing volunteers where they are desperately needed. Sending people with skills and knowledge that are transferred to local recipients, rather than parachuting in funds for short term projects, distinguishes CUSO International from many other NGOs.

This gallery is a collection of portraits from a Volunteer Photographic Assignment I completed on behalf of CUSO in the fall of 2011.
