Provide a photography workshop for 30 young people of a Buenos Aires shantytown which will enable them to acquire the skills to develop self-confidence and improve their job prospects through art

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Currently, ph15 serves 30 underserved young people who live in Villa 15, a shantytown in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Most participants' families came to Buenos Aires from rural areas of Argentina or from Paraguay with the hope of finding work. 30% of participantsAaa parents are unemployed and 40% receive government assistance. The main goal of the project is to integrate the beneficiaries of the program with the rest of the society through visual arts.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each student attends a free 3-year course, divided as follows: Expression through Photography - Expression & Technique - Digital Photography. Plus organizing national and international exhibitions, fieldtrips, receiving visiting artists, etc.

Potential Long Term Impact

All participants will learn to use images to communicate with others; gain skills in photography, editing, design; gain self-esteem, self-efficacy, ability to work in groups; increase their chances of finding a job; achieve higher levels of education
