Let us take you on an emotional journey as we work hand in hand with Children of Hope Uganda, a local NGO that is working to empower the children and people of Northern Uganda who have endured very difficult circumstances. From this experience you will not only be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone, but to step into new ideas and inspirations that will lead you forever changed.
Through discussion and guided practice, participants will come away with beautiful additions to their portfolios, and a refreshed outlook on what it means to be a "Photographer Without Borders."
All participants receive a certificate and have a chance to be featured in the PWB Magazine and/or the PWB News. A portion of proceeds also goes to support the NGO we are visiting.
