Picture my World - Promotional slideshow

  1. 1. Picture my World Life through a child’s lens
  2. 2. Picture my World is about children talking directly to other children about their lives across cultures. Through taking photos, children living in Cambodia and the UK can share what is important to them with their global neighbours.
  3. 3. CAFOD has run photo workshops with children between 9-13 years old in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Wakefield, UK to help them think about elements of their daily life they would like to share with others.
  4. 4. Through photos and words, the children have built a picture of their lives and can share their feelings and opinions about the people and places around them.
  5. 5. Children from both countries have taken photos of their families…..
  6. 6. Where they live……
  7. 7. And the jobs they do at home.

  13. 13. CAFOD supports local groups who work with children in Cambodia. Although Cambodia is famous for its natural beauty and temples, almost one in three people live on less than 45 cents a day – that’s about 27p.
  14. 14. With the support of the Catholic community in the UK, CAFOD helps children in Cambodia to go to school.
  15. 15. We also ensure that their families and other people living in the community can get medicine when they are unwell and help them find a safe place to live.
  16. 16. At CAFOD we believe that by understanding each other we can take positive steps to a more fair and peaceful world. In many places children’s voices are rarely heard, but this project places children at the centre.
  17. 17. “ The idea is that young people can learn about different communities around the world through the eyes of people their own age.
  18. 18. “ Normally we only glimpse the world from an adult perspective, but this project empowers young people to tell their own stories.” Victoria Ahmed, CAFOD schools co-ordinator
  19. 19. “ I have really enjoyed learning to use the camera to share things about my life. Now I want to learn about children of my age in Cambodia through the photos they will take, such as where they learn, where they live and the sports they like.” Wakefield photographer.
