USIP staff members are privileged to be able to travel and work in many places that are not on the beaten track. Along the way, we see amazing things, learn and share the experiences of different cultures and form lasting friendships. For the first time, understanding the power of images and hoping to inspire as well as inform, USIP shares photos from the field in an organized online exhibition.

The images below were all taken by USIP staff while working in Sudan. They have been divided into three categories to provide glimpses of three different ways in which we encountered the people and culture of the country.
