Do good through photography! At Penda, we strongly believe in the potential photography has to drive positive change. Pictures have the power to raise awareness on important issues, both on a humanitarian and conservation level. That’s why we run nonprofit photography workshops and photography volunteer projects, so that together, we can make full use of photography’s potential to do good. As a wildlife photography volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to photograph African wildlife, and use your images to support conservation charities.
As a humanitarian photography volunteer, you’ll work with people in South African townships who run social impact programs, and teach them basic photography skills, so that they’ll have better visual tools to raise awareness of their cause. You’ll also have the opportunity to photograph nonprofit projects, and donate your images to them, so that they can be used for fundraising purposes.
These photography volunteer projects are suitable for photographers of all levels; you don’t need to be a pro to make an impact. And at all programs you’ll be guided by professional photographers, who will help you sharpen your skills.
