Abderrahmane Ait Lqous, Morocco

Since I was a little boy, people in my neighborhood have been fighting about who has the right to take this land. In 2011 after I started my organization,  we suggested to build a community park so everyone could benefit from it. The man in the picture helped me looking for funding. I took the photo in his pottery workshop while he was making this beautiful piece. Marrakech is a city full of tourists from all over the world, it reminds me how much we need to accept others no matter how different they may be. When we finally got the grant to build the park, I told my niece. Now she keeps asking me: “Uncle take me to my garden to play.”
