Yamir Gul, 5
Rumbur Valley, Pakistan
Yamir Gul spends most days helping her mother irrigate their cornfield. The Kalash have a very intricate system of mountainside irrigation channels and tree-trunk aqua ducts to bring the glacial water of the Hindu Kush to their fields. Yamir Gul and her mother were using sticks to cut channels and direct the water to each and every corn plant. At a distance she looked like any five year-old playing in the mud and water, but as I watched I became amazed at how accurately she directed the water to the base of every plant. Among the Kalash the women tend the crops and the men are in charge of animal husbandry and preparation of dairy products.
