Photographer Brian Sokol has been posting portraits of Malian refugees taking an adult literacy class in Burkina Faso on the UN Refugees Agency Instagram page.
Sokol and UNHCR reporting officer Hugo Reichenberger spoke with 15 Malian refugees attending an adult literacy class in Goudebou refugee camp. Each of them had a different reason for learning to read and write.
“Reading will make me understand the world better,” says Mohammed. “This is my first chance to learn.”
