Agnes Stephano
Religion:Lutheran Christian
Resident:Arusha, Tanzania
Photographer:Ruben Caspary
I chose Agnes Stephano as somebody who helps her community. She has worked as a maeid for my family for 10 years. I heard lots of stories from her about how she helps a person with a sick child with advice and money. Htat is one way people respect he. Agnes also helps settle communication problems in her community. Through her hard work she saved enough money to buya gas stove instead of using charcoal which is illegal in Tanzania. I think her actions will communicate the idea that using a stove is better and cheaper and that might influence others to follow her.

Agnes has three boys. On top of that she has one brother, one sister and her mother staying at her house, which overwhelms her. She lives on the outskirts of Arusha town in a village called Olasiti in Tanzania. Her opinion of her community development is that it has developed much in the aspect of medical need and education.

Another reason I chose her is she’s not very famous but she does a lot. I think its important to show respect and encourage her for what she’s done for others.
