LIVING AMONG THE WODAABE - MOUSSA GOUMEYROU & THOMAS BERGER

A Fulani cattle herding people, the elusive Wodaabe are among the last nomads on earth.

Thomas Berger is a landscape architect from Germany. He’ll share his experience in Niger as a young, idealistic Peace Corps volunteer and how it would change his life. Hosted by: RAIN Founder Bess Palmisciano.
