Utterly Brilliant is a page dedicated to organisations and events that we think utterly brilliant!
Text is taken from 100 Cameras website:
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.
Every kid – no matter their background or circumstances – deserves the right to process their experiences in a way that creates space for emotional freedom in their future. At 100cameras, we work worldwide with participants from ages 10-18 who have experienced challenging events.
100% of the proceeds from student photo sales fund much-needed supplies, and the organizations in each community determine which medical, educational, or basic needs they need funded the most.
This enables change to become full circle by enabling students to not only process their stories and express themselves, but to see the impact of their contribution on the community.
This is crucial in showing youth firsthand that they are important contributors to their surroundings and that at the core of it all – they matter.
