You may know Omar Dabaghi-Pacheco from his time hosting CBC Ottawa's evening newscasts, but recently he's been plying his trade on the other side of the globe, too.

Earlier this year, Dabaghi-Pacheco took a month off to volunteer as a videographer for Ottawa-based NGO Farm Radio International.

His assignment: film a documentary about a radio show in Tanzania and Malawi called Positive Mood, which is trying to spark a dialogue among young people about mental health issues with its blend of hip-hop, radio drama and advice from experts.

We've put together a slideshow of some of the best images from Dabaghi-Pacheco's month in Africa. Tune in Tuesday to Ottawa Morning at 8:10 a.m., when he'll be talking more about his work for Farm Radio International with host Robyn Bresnahan.
