18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

Igbedor village, located on an island in the middle of the Niger river, Nigeria. The small island is exactly on the border of two different states and no one wants to have the jurisdiction on it. Basically, it's no man's land. Here I met an extraordinary Italian nun who founded a school (Emmanuel Family) and with the help of her Sisters aim to give an education and better life to the local people. Here a nun is seen holding a stick while supervising the kids marching and singing.
