The Month in Pictures #19

A note from Good Work Foundation’s Media Blogger, Accolade Ubisi:

As you scroll through our photos this month I would like to make you aware that this is the first month (ever!) that the Month in Pictures has been chosen and compiled by the GWF Media Academy. Each of the original members of our team has been clicking away on the camera this month, trying to capture those moments and little stories that we can share with you and our friends around the world. And to say that there have been “some” special moments this month would be an understatement. We have credited each photo with the name of the photographer. I sincerely hope you enjoy them, and feel free to let us know which one was your favourite in the comments section below.
