‘This is our daily work. We walk many kilometres in the snow – it’s our duty,’ says Sediqa Hoseini. The 24-year old is one of the female rangers that regularly patrol Band-e-Amir, the first declared national park in Afghanistan.

Snow covers her socks and shoes as she begins to warm herself in front of a heater in the park’s office. A mother of two, she shares the details of her daily routine – a balance of family life and work.
