CASE STUDY

  • Barefeet Girls

  • Field research

  • Humans of Barefeet

  • This is how it feels to arrive in Livingstone

Holly feels everyone has a responsibility of giving back to the world. But that was not her main reason for applying for the TIE programme. As she puts it, she was an “awkward” kid. She understands what it’s like to be an outsider and she has grown to actually like the challenge of being one.
