PROJECT DETAILS

The focus of this project will be documenting this NGO’s work based in 2 project sites, one in Nairobi and one in the surrounding rural area. It will involve visiting beneficiaries of various initiatives (such as school, micro-enterprise, and sanitation projects) and documenting the impact of these projects on the local community. The incumbent will also be responsible for hosting a photography workshop for NGO staff at the beginning of the project to teach them how to use a simple consumer-level digital camera, take impactful photos, and engage in story-telling through images.
