Please take a moment to feel the gratitude TB Photovoice extends to you for your support at so many levels. We are so fortunate to be in partnership with you and are happy to share how our programs are progressing.
For the past three months, TB Photovoice has been collaborating with our partners in Kenya and Zambia, setting the foundation for a strong project in each country. Relationship building is the key to our success as we explore how best to implement the power of photovoice in each unique community. It takes time, open minds and hearts to establish a project that will get to the root causes of TB and empower individuals to unleash their voices for the betterment of their families and communities.
We are hopeful that we will receive the necessary resources to fully see these two project through but your guidance and support during this journey is critical. Perhaps you can help today by offering $25 to provide 3 single use cameras to a TB Photovoice participant.
Our website over haul is almost complete! We thank the tireless volunteer work of Jose Sosa for this endeavor. Since TB Photovoice is a 100% volunteer run organization, we rely on volunteers like Jose who take the time to assist our overall efforts because they value our work and have many talents to share.
Thank you for recognizing the need for persons impacted by TB to have their voices heard, and for believing in us as we share training tools and support for communities around the world. Your kindness is felt by us all.
We send you all our best wishes in 2011! Even though it is only the end of January, your 2010 donation has made a significant impact on TB Photovoice as we look to a year of partnership and innovation.
“This organization’s activities allow those affected by TB to become potential catalysts for social action and change in their communities. The stories and perspectives of people affected by TB – reflecting stigma, isolation and poverty as well as hope, courage and unity – cannot be ignored as we move forward in our response,” said Ms Williams.
We recognize that the TB Photovoice vision is a long-term effort, but each individual stride is critical. We are so honored that you have joined our movement to ensure that persons affected by TB have the opportunity to become active partners in TB elimination, leaders in their communities (addressing issues such as improving education and person-centered care; fighting stigma related to TB), and advocates for social change.
Thank you for your kind support.
