we believe KIDS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
We are a nonprofit organization that works with kids around the world who have had traumatic 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.
1. GIVING AN OUTLET TO PROCESS AND TELL
We believe in providing a clearing where kids who have experienced traumatic circumstances can process and tell the stories of their past, present, and future through photography with no judgement or expectations.
Working with kids worldwide ranging in age from 10 - 18 years old, 100cameras has developed a custom curriculum that teaches kids both storytelling and technical photography skills in a way that impacts how they view themselves and their role in their community.
2. PROVIDING A PLATFORM TO BE THE LOCAL CHANGEMAKERS
We then give our students a platform to sell their photographs, and 100% of the proceeds* provides funding for the most pressing needs in their communities and enables them to see the impact of their contribution.
Our model partners with local organizations in each community that determine which medical, education or basic needs of their community they need funded the most. In addition, the cameras are left behind with the organization so that they can continue the work.
*After production costs, 100% of the proceeds equates to 94% of each student photo sale.
