Bridges to Understanding
- BRIDGES is an on-line classroom project connecting students from indigenous cultures with their urban contemporaries. Central to the program is interactive photographic storytelling mentored by professionals and created by the students. The BRIDGES curriculum guides students as they examine their own culture and explore the lives of children with beliefs and customs very different from their own. The program not only leads the students to a deeper understanding of their own culture and the culture of others, but to an understanding of how cultural customs and beliefs impact the environment. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to their cause today.
DIFFA - The Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids

- Fotokids was founded in Guatemala in 1991 by ex-Reuters photojournalist, Nancy McGirr, and was originally called Out of the Dump. The project began with a group of six children aged 5 - 12, who lived and worked in Guatemala City's vast garbage dump. The purpose of Fotokids is to help small groups of Central American young people from the poorest of barrios develop useful, employable skills as a means to self-exploration, expression, and discovery. Through intensive, long-term personal relationships with teachers and mentors, participating children learn to use photography, creative writing, and computers as tools to examine their lives, families, communities and environment. Over the years, the project grew to include children from other economically poor areas of the capital. Since 1996, Fotokids has expanded to include communities outside Guatemala City. Currently Fotokids involves over 80 young people, ages 7 to 21, in six distinct communities. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to their cause today.
Kids with Cameras/Born Into Brothels
- Kids with Cameras is a non-profit organization that teaches the art of photography to marginalized children in communities around the world. It was founded by Zana Briski, the photographer and filmmaker that made the Academy Award winning film "Born Into Brothels", which documents the lives of eight children living in the brothels of North Calcutta, India. Kids with Cameras uses photography to capture the imaginations of children, to empower them, building confidence, self-esteem and hope. They share their vision and voices with the world through exhibitions, books, websites and film. The organization is committed to furthering the children's general education beyond photography either by linking with local organizations to provide scholarships or by developing their own schools with a focus on leadership and the arts. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to their cause today.
Through the Eyes of Children/The Rwanda Project
- Through the Eyes of Children began as a photographic workshop in 2000, conceived by photographer, David Jiranek, and inspired by the founder of the Imbabazi Orphanage, Rosamond Carr - an American woman living in Rwanda for over 50 years. Currently there are over 100 orphans of the genocide under the care of the Imbabazi Orphanage. Using disposable cameras, the children originally took pictures for themselves and to share with others, exploring their community, and finding beauty as the country struggles to rebuild from the horrific genocide that took place in 1994, resulting in the deaths of nearly one million people. The goal of this project is to share with the world the perspective of the children, to provide an opportunity to reflect on the tragedy of the genocide by observing life today through the eyes of Rwanda's children. Additionally, the project aims to demonstrate to the children that they have something to share with the world that is meaningful. Through the sale of their photographs, the children receive that message, as well as the means to continue their photography and their education. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to their cause today.
