We live in a world of social media. It’s one of the main ways that we take in information and news. It’s also a powerful tool for awareness.
Ask yourself this- would you be more moved by someone talking to you about street boys or by you clicking the play button of a video and staring at the face of a street boys while he tells you what his life is like? Would you be more affected by a couple sentences describing a trafficked girl or by a photograph showing a young, vulnerable child staring back at you?
Incredible local organizations and ministries are working daily tackling some of the hardest human issues. Raising awareness and support is a crucial piece of the puzzle. By using our cameras and social media skills, we can help to give them quality media to do just that.
I lead trips in conjuction with one child campaign. We take professional creatives abroad to create media databases for different groups that work with trafficked children, orphans, at-risk women and families, and street boys. A crucial part of this will be learning how to retain the beauty and human dignity of the people while we work to make this content.
If you are a photographer or film maker interested in more information on this trip or are an organization that would like to collaborate on a project, I'd Love to hear from you.
