THROUGH THEIR EYES AFRICA



David Hessemer is doing a blogathon TODAY for his "Through Their Eyes" Africa project. He is going to be taking a team of photographers to Africa next year to areas where all the adults have died and the children are more or less on their own with little aid.

In addition to helping the people living there, we will also be teaching them to take photographs, in the hope of giving them a skill as well as to be able to see the world the way they see it. The photographs they take will be formed into a traveling exhibit all over the country. It's really a fantastic project, however, it needs funding to make it happen!

Today and tomorrow we are running a blogathon to make that happen. The link where you go to donate and learn more about the project is below...

I have missed so much since my last visit, as always I love your unique perspective on life and your surroundings. Your trip sounds like heaven and I can't wait to see more photos of what you saw.

Good luck with this project, as someone who was born in Africa I can empathise with the cause you have taken on. I look forward to hearing the results and hope that you find and educate some talented individuals. The children are like sponges and I know you will enjoy their experiences along with them.
