It is a balancing act between
two worlds. The traditional
life, with structure that fits the
living conditions on one side,
with the ideal of way of life
and beauty of the globalized
world on the other.

The kids and young adults in the
Kavango Region, in northern
Namibia, have to face the gap
between the modern life, with
cellphones, facebook accounts,
western values and ideals, and
the traditional life of their
ancestors on a daily basis.

In Gumma, a small village on
the waterfront of the Kavango
river, the traditional struc-
tures are the backbone and
livelihood of the families.
They have adapted perfectly to
the environmental conditions
and needs of the people.

The days of a persons social
ranking determined by the
number of cows they own are
numbered, but the traditional
language, medicine and know-
ledge is still alife and used
on a daily basis.
