Zaatar – Nouakchott

Zaatar is the neighbourhood we’ve chosen to work in for this new episode of Share The Word Project.

It’s a sandy stretch of land in the East of Noukchott with a few salty marshes. Very few trees grow here because of the salt in the ground. Families have built houses with wood from pallets and iron sheets that come from used barrels. The driest marchlands are used as open spaces where kids play and goats roam.

Majad wanted me to take a picture of him wearing his swimming cap which he’s very proud of.
