INTRODUCING SMARTHUMANS

My name is Michael Spencer and I began SmartMoney in 2010 to provide Rural Africans a safe and secure place to save their money. Along the way I met many wonderful rural people with interesting and inspiring stories to share. At their request, I began photographing some of these people and writing short captions for the photos. This evolved into longer interviews. In February 2016 my nephew, Magnus Kuttainen, joined SmartMoney in Uganda for his gap year and he also started capturing photo interviews of the people he met. Magnus helped me to organize the photo interviews into this blog which we call SmartHumans of Uganda. Our vision is to expand upon what Magnus and I started by providing a platform to other photo bloggers who live and work in Uganda’s rural communities and who are equally passionate about capturing and sharing photo interviews of the members of their community.
