Since 2008, Listen to My Pictures has funded two photography projects in Guadalajara, the capital of the Mexican state of Jalisco. Both projects were organized in partnership with CODENI, a local non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of Jalisco’s most vulnerable and marginalized children.see the photos>
“It ended up being 3 groups of students from 3 different community areas in Gulu… Our students were all at risk youth – child soldiers, orphans, child headed households. Using photography was a more indirect way for them to express themselves without feeling they were making themselves vulnerable, which is not entirely culturally accepted.”see the photos >
In 2009, eight students, from the small village of Bigogwe in Western Rwanda, met every other day for class instruction and photography expeditions into the local community. Their photographs and autobiographies express both the beauty and hardship of life in a region severely affected by the 1994 genocide and the 2007 floods.see the photos
