As part of our normal programming we are planning for the Raising Voices Phase II photo exhibition which will take place soon. The exhibition is supposed to take in the month of September. This has been made possible by the support of GlobalGiving and Lensational.
Mathare Foundation participants have continued to manifest positive progress in terms of masterly of photography technics. The skills that they have acquired are being transfered to other young people within the organization and this is not only brings ripple effects but it ensures that number of emerging trainers is rising.
The photography instructor is on the center of ensuring that the participants can edit their photos through simple editing sotwares such as Microsoft Office Picture Manager to sophicated applications such as Adobe Photoshop. The participants are in the initial stages of ensuring that the they are conversant with photo editing.
The participants are also being trained on how to organize a photo exhibition since they are supposed to play an integral part in the upcoming photo exhibition. During the exhibition, we shall invite partners, family and friends to this event so that we are able to showcase what skills the young people have gained throughout the year.
We have had a couple of challenges in the implementation of this project. There has been existance of new projects within the organization which interfere with the normal routine. To reduce and/or curb this interference, we have been able to maintain our traditional activities on the weekends and work on the new exisitng projects on the weekdays.
Thank you so much for your support wherever you are.
