 The village of Dickson contains 55 households and some 300 inhabitants. In 2005 photographer Jan Banning and writer Dick Wittenburg spent two extended stays in the village interviewing its people<br />
and photographing them in their homes as part of a project on poverty.  They returned to Dickson in 2015 to see how the villagers had fared in the intervening years which had seen the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals.
