Strong comic about an Ethiopian maid in Saudi Arabia
|A detail from a page in the Almaz story|
Almaz, the story of an Ethiopian migrant worker in Saudi-Arabia was published in the BBC’s NEWS Magazine at the end of September.The story is about an Ethiopian girl, who is sent for work in Saudi Arabia and her fate as a maid in Riyad. She is maltreated, like countless other migrant workers in the Gulf. It is an important story, well told in poignant comic art. The drudgery of Almaz’ daily work is shown very skilfully in a long succession of panels.
The methodology makes sure that the stories are truly representative and usable in education and advocacy. Read a detailed description of their methodology in this link http://www.positivenegatives.org/methodology#0
