Photos from the “Photo Sumba Stories” program, which started in January 2020 and will run for three months!
As Kawan Baik aims to contribute to the development in disadvantaged areas, we need to map out the most pressing issues in every area where we work. Nevertheless, it is sometimes a difficult process to define what the real problems are, to decide what should be prioritized, and to find the most effective method to solve the problems.
Therefore, we initiate a photography project, through which we attempt to do the process in a creative way by engaging local children and understanding the problems through their perspective.
Sumba Photo Project will be one of our brainchildren. In this project, we will teach local children about photography, including how to use a camera, take photos with good angle and composition, and subsequently making good stories out of their photos.
We will lend them cameras and let them take pictures of anything in their surroundings as we continue to hone their photography skills through a series of training. The photos are expected to capture real problems in their environment, which are interpreted through the children’s genuine point of view. Visit bluesprucemaids.com .
The project will be conducted in three phases: training/workshop, exposition, as well as evaluation and action plans.
