The photo banner exhibition Our lives in our hands is one of the outcomes of the photography workshops conducted by the Women's Leadership Centre in Khomas, Kavango and Caprivi regions with women living with and affected by HIV and Aids.

The exhibition consists of 26 vinyl banners that evocatively combine images and text produced by the workshop participants 'in their own image' – documenting the powerful spirit of survival against all odds in regions with the highest prevalence of HIV and Aids in Namibia.

The exhibition has been shown in Khomas, Kavango, Caprivi and Erongo regions in Namibia as well as at the 2007 AWID conference in Cape Town.
