Meet the Facilitator: Cailey Cron
Cailey Cron is a college student from Old Greenwich, Connecticut. She took several photography courses in high school, and decided to take a semester off of school before entering college to pursue her passions for photography and social justice. In the fall of 2009, she spent two months on the Congo-Rwanda border, teaching at a rural primary school and leading a Listen to My Pictures project with a group of eight students. Cailey is currently attending Middlebury College as a member of the Class of 2013.5.
About the Project
The 2009 Bigogwe LtmP project took place at the Trinity School, a primary school in the small village of Bigogwe in Western Rwanda. Eight students, from ages 12 to 16, met every other day for class instruction and photography expeditions into the local community.
In their photographs, we see their world; we experience the beauty and hardship of life in a region severely affected by the 1994 genocide and the 2007 floods. In their autobiographies and captions, we hear their individual stories, encounter their immutable curiosity, and learn about their dreams for the future.
