The Noura Nyal Kids are from the town of Nyal, South Sudan, where seventy percent of the girls are married before the age of eighteen. The young women range in age from fourteen to eighteen, and they dream of a better future. New to photography, Oxfam introduced them to international photojournalist Andreea Câmpaneau. Together, they practiced basic photography skills, exploring parts of Nyal that they loved, while they experimented taking photos of each other.
