Helping Kids Help their Communities… with a Camera (with gorgeous photos)

student at karambi secondary school in rwanda

Kahiliti Gekimana, 14 years old, took this photograph of Franci Uwimpuhwe on our second day of teaching at the Karambi Secondary School in Rwanda. After the word spread of our photography program, everyone in the 700-person school wanted to be a part of it. Students would abandon their classrooms to look into ours from the outside. As much as we wanted to work with everyone it was impossible. At times, like when this photo was taken, there would be well over one hundred kids surrounding our classroom and we could not leave because the photographers would be swarmed. This photo shows Franci looking out over her peers. Eventually, everyone in that school will go through the program.
