Refugee Children in Lebanon Use Cameras to Document Their Lives

Take a look at these stunning photos taken by refugee children living in Lebanon: http://goo.gl/hHW8lr Through a project that provided the kids with disposable cameras, we are able to catch a glimpse of what everyday life is like for these children. Over 600,000 refugee children live in Lebanon, most of whom are unable to go to school and are without access to proper shelter and clean water. Seeing the world through their eyes is remarkable and heart-breaking.

These are heart lifting stories from @BuzzFeed that show the humanity and compassion being shown as the refugee crisis continues to unfold. Even in the darkest of times, there is more love than hate and more people who care than don’t. See these touching photos: http://goo.gl/YzlPr7

We recently went back to India, where we met with the children who are benefiting from our projects. We were able to visit four of our partner homes in India and we were there for the start of two of our new projects. It was a truly amazing adventure that we are so grateful for! As our photographer Ben said, “this is everything!” #India #children #kids #passion #inspire #friends #love #travel #hardwork #SeeTheWorld #adventure #BeAmazing #PayItForward #DoGood #everyChild #kindness #hope #wanderlust #photography #BelieveInGood #positivity #optimism #BeAmazing #courage #globalcitizen #WereAllInThisTogether #motivation #inspiration #gratitude

A #tbt to our first trip to India several years ago! It was such a privilege to meet the kids and get to see firsthand their personalities and individual spirits. We have continued to work with Ashirvad Home through our chicken farm project, which is designed in such a way to generate income that benefits the nutrition and education of the 79 kids. The original investment was in the building of the farm and now the chickens will be bred and sold in the market, while some stay at the farm to continue the project. The profits from selling the chickens in the market is allocated towards the health and education of the children by covering the costs of fresh fruit and computers for the home. We love looking back at where we started with this project and looking ahead to what the future holds!

Is this a zoolander face or what? As part of our “Little Lens” series, we are sharing photos that the children at the Arias Home of Hope take themselves, with a camera we left behind in 2013. Arias is home to 39 children, all HIV/AIDS positive. We are currently fundraising for a solar installation that will end up saving the home enough money to provide eggs and fruits to the children’s diets, crucial additions for their delicate health. Please visit our site to invest in their well being! [link in bio] Our “Little Lens” series will run every Tuesday, and from the pictures we are getting, it seems selfies are pretty popular with kids no matter where in the world! #selfie #zoolander #butfirst #face #cute #india #inspire #getinvolved #giveback #nutrition #health #HIV #AIDS #children #impact #change #photography #toocute #littlelens
