Lale Lubuko and John Rowe

Kara tribal member Lale Labuko and world-renowned photographer John Rowe are the founders of Omo Child, a foundation that rescues and cares for children located in the Omo River Valley region of Southwest Ethiopia.  Omo Child’s mission is to stop Mingi, the ritualistic killing of infants and children, and to provide a safe, nurturing shelter and quality education for rescued children.
