In our shoes

As G8 leaders meet to discuss poverty and climate change, Tanzanian Joyce Mbwilo, 30, tells of her struggles and hopes.

Joyce raises her hands and declares: "We are struggling, we don't want to remain poor.

"If I could talk to the heads of the G8 summit I would ask them to put themselves in our shoes, walking long distances to collect water and not able to send their children to secondary school."

Joyce is pictured with three of her five children.
