Virtual Photo Walks is a project to allow people using video conferencing tools to be interactive citizens again. Utilizing the hangout feature and smartphones, people living with disability are able to visit and interact with smart phone enabled photographers to see places and people they use to, see things that they might not have had the chance to see.
Those who are immobilized by disability, illness or age are unable to escape their isolation and re-engage with society virtually. They can not go out into nature and reap the benefits it has to offer mentally.
Those whom we will service learn to use mobile video chat tools to virtually participate in events in selected locations around the world. Virtual Photo Walks is a free service cause that uses smartphones and video conferencing to enable people isolated by illness or disability to travel the world in real time.
Participants will use the tools we give them to engage with their family, friends and to more efficiently interact with their caregivers.
