lene ask visits tanzania

September 8, 2008

Hurray, hurray, more Lene Ask, and this time it’s all up online! Unfortunately, so far only for Norwegian readers (and the very patient). The creator of ‘Hitler, Jesus og Farfar’ was invited to visit Tanzania by aid agency Norad, to highlight the issue of child and maternal health through her drawings. No easy If you want to see the drawings themselves in real life, they are on show at Literatturhuset for a week starting today.

Her simple but well-formed drawings take on an additional poignancy within this theme, although they also take on the issues of poverty, illiteracy, female circumcision, and more. No easy answers to any of the problems, but an interesting and beautiful way to raise awareness of the agency’s programmes while supporting local artists.

    Hi, Good evening.

    I came accross your blog while looking for bloggers from Tanzania. I must say I was really impressed by your Tanzania-related posts and I’m happy that Blogging by or about Tanzania is now increasing. It is a very nice contribution you bloggers are making because it helps Tanzanians like me who live abroad to connect with home.

    My friends and I have just launched a Tanzanian forum called TanzaniaMeet.com (TMeet) where we have created a Tanzanian bloggers community and we are currently compiling a list of all Tanzanian blogs and we are inviting you to add your blog to the list and join the first ever Tanzanian bloggers community. Please help us spread the word about TMeet to your readers and all bloggers and blog about us. Thanks a lot! We’ll be expecting for you.
