100 Cameras Outreach Program

CONNECTING KIDS AND THEIR COMMUNITIES

‘100 Cameras’ is a nonprofit organization that works with kids around the world who have had challenging experiences, and we teach them how to process and tell their stories through photography in a way that impacts how they view themselves and their role in their community.

We provide a platform to sell their photographs and give 100% of the proceeds to fund the most pressing needs in their communities, enabling them to see the impact of their contribution.

This summer, we were thrilled to donate 200 cameras to the 100cameras organization. This equipment was then used in 8 different community programs in cities around the world.

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH

Our model flips the narrative and gives youth the tools to share their voices and become the storytellers, leaders, and change-makers for their community and beyond.  We are all about uplifting participants, instilling confidence as youth process and express their experiences, and engaging local perspectives to tell the stories. Learn more about how this infiltrates everything we do through our model, programming and platforms, curriculum, and impact on an individual and community level.

WE WORK AROUND THE WORLD

From South Sudan to Cuba to Thailand to USA to India and Brazil, kids are learning how to express their perspectives and tell the stories of their past, present, and future through our custom curriculum that teaches both storytelling and technical photography skills. 

PURCHASE PHOTOS TAKEN BY KIDS

100% of the proceeds from each sale (90%) fund the most pressing needs in the student participant’s community, enabling them to become contributors by providing for much needed supplies for themselves and fellow society members. 

Our model partners with local, kid-centered organizations in each community that determine which medical, educational, or basic needs of their community need to be funded the most.
