Kids with a pinhole camera they built
Thanks for your generous support to our project “Support Media Literacy for Kids in Rural India.” We have reached out to more than 150 children till date. We have an extreme pleasure to share the voices heard from the children about this project.
“They made us learn to make pinhole camera and taught us how to take photograph using a digital camera. We are happy to get practical experience in taking photographs through different cameras.” (Rounika- Std. IX, Govt. High School Paravanahalli, Bangarpet Taluk).
“It was interesting to learn to take photographs using pinhole camera without cutting images of the objects and also to print them in the dark room. We request you to get films for us next time.”(Ranjit, Std. IX, Govt. High School Paravanahalli, Bangarpet Taluk).
“I have been studying in this school for the past nine years and I want to say that we never knew about camera and how much of light is required to take good photographs. We are extremely benefitted from the training program of this nature and we have learnt various aspects like shutter operations, light management, etc. The benefits gained out of this training cannot be explained in words and the same is known to our conscious only. We are really grateful to Agastya & the donors for arranging such a good training program.”(Ananya - Std. IX , Govt. High School,Paravanahalli, Bangarpet Taluk)
We have been able to reach out to many more Rounika, Ranjit and Ananya, to make them dream big in life and work towards achieving it. This all has become possible because of friends like you who are regularly supporting our project.
Please feel free to write us if you have any query. We will look forward to your continued support.
