Kids with Cameras

We just saw Born into Brothels on DVD for the first time and we were both moved by the amazing story of these children and the energy that the photographer, Zana Briski, put into bettering the lives of the young inhabitants of the labyrinthine brothel in Calcutta.

One result of Mrs. Briski's efforts has been Kids with Cameras, a non-profit organization that sponsors similiar photo projects with children in Egypt, Jerusalem and Haiti and also continues to support the children that we see in the movie.

For me this is a very inspiring organization, since not only is Kids with Cameras directly helping these children, it also allows us to see the world through the eyes of these children. It is a very simple and elegant idea that changes the future of the world, one child at a time.

Please consider to contribute.
