Empowering Migrant Communities through Photography
It's an honour to be inducted into the Singapore Kindness Movement's Kindred Spirit Circle.
When it comes to making a positive impact in the world, it's important to start small and build from there. That's exactly what the "Everyone Can Take Wow Pictures" Ground Up Movement is doing. With a passionate team of photographers and trainers, the movement empowers migrant communities through free photography workshops, contests, and more.
What started as a simple idea has grown into something much bigger. Through the hard work and dedication of the team, we have been able to reach more than 150 migrant friends with our free photography workshops. Our Telegram chat has grown to 60 members, which includes five trainers who are passionate about teaching photography.
Starting with absolutely nothing - no cameras, funding, resources, or contacts - it's truly amazing how far the "Everyone Can Take Wow Pictures" Ground Up Movement has come. Despite these seemingly insurmountable challenges, we refused to be deterred and instead leaned on the kindness of others to donate used cameras and equipment. The hard work and dedication have not gone unnoticed, as we have received support from the Singapore Kindness Movement and The Straits Times, which is a testament to the impact we are making in the community.
Our monthly photo contests have been a huge success, with over 200 entries submitted so far. These contests are open only to migrant friends, giving them a chance to showcase their skills and creativity.
The "Everyone Can Take Wow Pictures" movement is breaking down barriers and empowering migrant communities through the art of photography. By giving them access to the tools and resources they need, we aspire to help them to build skills and confidence that will serve them well in the future.
The success of this movement is a testament to the power of starting small and building from there. By taking a simple idea and running with it, the team behind "Everyone Can Take Wow Pictures" has made a real difference in the lives of migrant communities.
If you're passionate about making a positive impact in the world, then consider getting involved with this movement. Whether you're a photographer or just someone who believes in the power of kindness, there are plenty of ways to contribute. Contact us now.
Together, we can build a more inclusive and compassionate society, one photograph at a time.
