Build a kindergarten. Establish a community center. Add books to a library. Empower the youth in Kakuma with cameras.
I’ve spent the last four years in Kakuma documenting the Lost Boys & Girls of Sudan who’ve been trapped in a refugee camp setting for more than 27 years and teaching photography to young people throughout the camp. I also have been finding sustainable solutions to help this community. So far, seven business have been established. A library has been opened with 300 books, school supplies, and games. And Dream Studio, a business run by five young refugee photographers whom I mentor, are going into classrooms empowering children to share their stories.
Every print and pendant you purchase goes directly to continuing this work, reminding them there are those ‘out there’ who care.
