the 100cameras misson
We believe in providing a clearing where kids can process and tell the stories of their past, present, and future through photography with no judgement or expectations.
Working with kids ranging in age from 10 - 16 years old, 100cameras has developed a custom curriculum that teaches kids both technical photographic skills and storytelling in a way that impacts how they view themselves and their role in their community.
We then give our students a platform to sell their photographs, which provides funding for the most pressing needs in their communities and enables them to see the impact of their contribution. Our model partners with local organizations in each community that determine which medical, education or basic needs of their community they need funded the most. In addition, the cameras are left behind with the organization so that they can continue the work.
