The ancient task, new every day, of finding water on Africa’s arid plains. Celebrating a wedding by sacrificing and roasting a goat. Bringing electricity and modern health care to people who dwell in palm-frond huts and count their wealth in cattle. Sixteen students from Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism spent 10 days at TBI over the 2013 winter break reporting these stories, and more. Their project, “Turkana: Challenges in a Stark Land,” examines how the Turkana people, semi-nomadic pastoralists, are coping with the pressures of the 21st century.
