The photographer will be documenting the NGO’s work in various sites around rural areas of Nairobi. The photographer will visit and document youth leadership training initiatives in various communities, which aim to empower marginalized youth through skills transfer workshops. The photographer will be responsible for documenting the worships, profiling the students, and specific economic activities carried out by the students.
The images will be used on the organization’s website and social media platforms, as well as to help the organization create more awareness about their programs. Your images will also be shared by PWB to help support the work of the NGO and the PWB program.
