Our unique approach
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.
1. PROVIDING AN OUTLET TO PROCESS AND TELL
Our custom curriculum teaches both storytelling and technical photography skills in a way that guides participants through a process of self-discovery and realization of the important role and contribution they have in their surroundings.
Photography is utilized as a gateway to teach confidence, ownership, and expression, providing a clearing where youth can process and tell the stories of their past and present, with no judgement or expectations in a way that inspires hope for their view of the future.
We train teachers all around the world to lead programs in partnership with established organizations such as schools, community centers, and children’s homes.

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.
We work around the world
