Photographer's Note

The beauty of a woman Is not a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul, the caring she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows. The rejoice of the hard work of this rural Hui woman, Fatima - being a younger mother, a home maker and a teacher is just amazing.

I thought it's only appropriate upload to remember International Women's Day today, a special day to show our love and gratefulness to women in many ways, to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their communities and also to let women know their importance in ones life and society.

This inspirational proud woman plays the different roles such as sister, daughter, mother, wife and teacher in her life.....

Taken in a remote part of mountainous north western Yunnan Province in a Hui Muslim village called Habaxueshan Village, a tiny village on the slopes of Haba mountain range is pretty much stuck in a time warp sitting at an elevation of about 3000m.

Workshop2: Fatima and the only classroom: They are getting basic education in their own language in Mandarin and they are also learning Arabic to my surprise in this smallest school I have ever seen consisting of only a tiny class/activity room. But it was a delightful experience indeed, such small things give then so much pleasure to these mountain children and my whole experience was an eye opener...
