100cameras, the most creative way to share stories

When you go to 100camera's homepage, this is the first thing you read: 100cameras is a nonprofit organization that identifies children living in unjust conditions and gives them cameras to document their lives. Their photo narratives are used to raise awareness and capital to meet physical needs and empower sustainable growth within their community. When you purchase one of the children's photos, 100percent of that money is given back to the partner organization.
This group gives cameras to underprivelaged children. In hopes that by seeing the lives they live, the organization can better serve them.
Cameras to children to see their lives through their lenses.
According to their website, this is how it works:
it's simple, really.

we give a camera to jackson.

jackson snaps a photo.

then you buy his photo.

your money goes back to jackson.

and jackson is empowered.

Watch the video. Get inspired. Visit the website (100cameras.org)
