Anica James working with non-profit organizations

A mother and her daughter share a joyful moment together while collecting water from one of the few working taps in Arupokhari VDC, Nepal. Located less than 40 km south from the epicentre of the deadly 2015 Gorkha earthquake, the region faced a severe drought for eight months straight, causing nine of the 12 taps in the village development community to dry up.

Photojournalism program testimonial

The photojournalism program at Loyalist College gave me the foundational skills I needed in order to develop my craft and begin my career as a freelance photographer. I will be forever grateful to the staff for their insight and guidance when I was a student, and their continued support after graduation.
