Our Projects

Listen to my Pictures projects are facilitated by both local and foreign volunteers who share the organization’s goal of enabling children to share the stories of their lives through the photographs they capture.

Since August 2009, Listen to My Pictures has funded two photography projects in Guadalajara, in the Mexican state of Jalisco. This project, facilitated by Pepe Macba, was organized in partnership with CODENI, a local non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of Jalisco’s most vulnerable and marginalized children. Thirteen students participated in this initial project. The sale of their prints through CODENI helped to fund the construction of Casa Codeni, which provides services for street children in Guadalajara.
