Photojournalist Linda Smith wanted to develop an art program for children that utilized photography and had the potential to be successfully conducted in third world countries. As a result of her research and vision, the Through the Eyes of Hope Project was born in 2007. The project has two goals: to teach basic photographic principles to extremely disadvantaged children and to educate children who are interested in learning about the children of other cultures. “Through the Eyes of Hope Project” provides cameras and photographic workshops to children in Rwanda and U.S.
Their blog is meant for the children in the project to meet and interact with each other. Visit the blog by clicking here, and visit their main page above.
