Finding Freedom in the Water - Peace image of the Year 2018
Socially dominated by upholders of the Quran, women in Zanzibar are banned from learning how to swim. And now they do it anyway. They dare to do it, they risk a double dare. The project is called ‘Panje’. It encourages more and more girls and young women to take themselves more seriously than the verdict of old bearded men. This is a declaration of love for women who make their peace with their desire for freedom of movement, for autonomy.

يُعرف عن النساء اللواتي يعانينَ من هيمنة جماعة حملة القرآن في زنجبار بأنّهنّ ممنوعات من السباحة. لكنّهنّ بدأنَ يسبحنَ ويتجرّأنَ على فعل ذلك أمام الجميع، فيعلنّ أنّ لا حدود لشجاعتهنّ. ويأتي في هذا الصدد مشروع "بانجي" الذي يشجّع الفتيات والشابّات على ترفيع ما يردنَ فعله عن فتاوى الرجال العجزة الملتحين. ويجسّد هذا التحرّك إعلاناً صارخاً عن حبّ هؤلاء النساء لأنفسهنّ وإعلانهنّ الكفاح من أجل الحصول على حريّتهنّ في التنقّل واستقلاليّتهنّ.
