Sister Angélique Namaika, the 2013 UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award laureate, photographed following a literacy class she instructs near the town of Dungu, Orientale Province, Democratic Republic of Congo on 1 August, 2013. She assists displaced women and girls who have been forced from their homes by armed groups - including the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). It’s estimated that more than a half million people have been forced from their homes - and 70% of those by LRA-related activities or the threat of attacks. Photo by Brian Sokol / courtesy UNHCR
