Mario Osava is living his journalistic dream. The 63-year-old correspondent for Inter Press Services, a Mott grantee, is digging deep and uncovering the effects of large infrastructure projects on Brazil’s 192 million residents, their livelihoods, and the local environment.
Read an article on Mott’s Web site at bit.ly/IPS-Brazil describing the places he visits, people he interviews and projects he investigates.
“It is very rewarding for me to visit projects,” Osava said. “These stories are not based on other people’s testimonies or from phone interviews, but by contacting people in their local reality far from big cities, such as in the Amazon.”
