        On the Verge of Displacement | Global Oneness Project

        Indigenous communities find their self-sustaining ways of life at risk due to the development of a hydropower dam in southwestern Ethiopia.

        Students view the photo essay, "Kara Women Speak," by Jane Baldwin, which portrays indigenous women and girls from the Omo River Valley in southwestern Ethiopia.  

        In this lesson, students examine the characteristics of the Kara people and their way of life, and discuss the potential environmental and cultural impacts of the Gibe III dam and hydroelectric plant in Ethiopia. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
