Welcome home!

In May, Anne Lehmann and I worked for the German development organization AGEH at a conference with the charity Brot für die Welt.

Our mission was to visualize stories told by development workers who had recently returned to Germany from abroad. While most of these stories originated in places like rural Kenya or Colombia, they inevitably dealt with the changes in perspective experienced by the development workers when they returned home, and their struggles to reconcile their views with those who had stayed behind.

I found some of those stories deeply moving, some where funny, and some were quite sad – but in all cases I was impressed by the narrators’ dedication to make the world a better place. I hope, we also made a small contribution to that goal by our graphic recordings.
