we believe KIDS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
We are 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.
1. GIVING AN OUTLET TO PROCESS AND TELL
Our program provides a clearing where kids 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, our custom curriculum teaches 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
100% of the proceeds* from student photo sales fund much-needed supplies, and our model partners with local organizations in each community that determine which medical, educational or basic needs they need funded the most. In addition, the cameras are left behind with the kids or organization so that they can continue the work.
*After production, 100% of the proceeds from our student photos sold online equates to 94% of each sale.
Established in 2009, 100cameras is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization in the United States of America and funded entirely through the generous donations of individuals, businesses and foundations. Tax ID Number: 26-4692506.
