The Christensen Fund is conscious and respectful of the communities in which we work, and we take the usage of images and likenesses of people and places very seriously. Here we detail, to the best of our ability, photo credits and attribution to the images displayed throughout our website.

Sustainable grantmaking in Central Asia This image was taken by Christensen Staff in Kyrgyzstan, 2008. Yaks are a natural part of mountainous landscapes in Central Asia. They produce milk which is extremely rich in fats and protein, and they help fertilize and spread native grasses.


This image was supplied to Christensen by a grantee, the Yothu Yindi Foundation, based in Northern Australia. This photo was taken at the Yothu Yindi-produced Garma Festival, a nationally significant, intimate, spectacular celebration of cultural traditions and practices including native dance, song, music and art.


This image was taken by Christensen staff in the Kakadu National Park, Northern Australia, in 2008. In the photo are Aboriginal rock paintings of ‘Mimi spirits’, which are said to have taught the Aborigines of Australia how to hunt, prepare kangaroo meat and use fire.



This photo was taken by Nico Lewis in Eithiopia in 2008. The photo shows a traditional village in the African Rift Valley, in this case an Hor village in Tabia, Ethiopia, where in addition to raising livestock, the people are engaged with the harvesting of root crops.



This photo was taken by Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, a past Christensen grantee, in Ethiopia, 2009.




This photo was taken by Mayumi Fujio, Executive Assistant and Board Liason, of the bioculturally rich Wakhan Valley. This majestic alpine valley is in the Badakhshan region of Tajikistan and Afghanistan. The valley is part of the Pamir Mountains in Central Asia.



This photo of The Christensen Fund’s African Rift Valley Program Officer, Dr. Wolde Tadesse, was taken at a traditional Hor/Arbore welcoming reception. A gourde filled with honey wine is passed around a circle, in this case in a village in Gondoroba, Ethiopia.
