By supporting grassroots organizations in developing communities worldwide, you are not only promoting the success of the organization, but the success of the community itself. We plan to help these communities by spreading awareness and bringing recognition to such grassroots, youth run organizations through the use of photojournalism.
For a total of 5 months, we will document the work being done at two different youth operated organizations in Burma and Thailand, one an orphanage and the other a youth education program.
With the information we collect, we will then create a photojournalistic book documenting the entirety of the efforts being carried out by these organizations and their impact on the children and the community as a whole. The creation of this book will then provide an example of the work that is being carried out by youth in communities like these throughout the world, showing just how essential and powerful community based efforts can be.
By working from the inside out and recognizing the efforts being carried out within a community, it will empower the people in the community without having to rely upon bringing organizations from the outside in.
