PhotoVoice projects empower some of the most disadvantaged groups in the world with photographic skills so that they can transform their lives.
Through establishing in-field photojournalism workshops PhotoVoice projects enable those who are traditionally the subjects of photography to become its creator.
Through photography these individuals find confidence in their voices and are enabled to speak out about their challenges, concerns, hopes and fears.
