Please Donate Your Used Camera!
In mid-December, the Boston University arm of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program (a State Department-sponsored educational exchange initiative) will run a photo essay camp for human trafficking survivors in Uganda, with support from the U.S. Embassy and the Peace Corps. We could really use your used, but usable, digital camera that you no longer use!
Camp participants will document local cultural topics along with cross-cutting issues such as gender equality and climate change. The materials will be compiled into a printed book with web-enabled formats, and a gallery exhibition, which will be disseminated through the Peace Corps, the BU Humphrey Program, and other channels.
