OUR APPROACH

Photovoices International’s approach brings unparalleled value:

  • by increasing knowledge, skills and confidence of under-represented communities to express their views and concerns more effectively.

  • by using powerful visuals and stories to provide vital local context to policy and decision-making processes. 

We apply specific processes to promote positive change:

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT

Teluk Semanting Village

I never amounted to anything much. I didn't fit in in school and I dropped out of high school. Being a volunteer with the Photovoices program has changed by life. I learnt so much, I was able to talk with the Regent of Berau about the condition of my village. I never imagined I could have any impact and now I know I can.

WORDS FROM OUR PARTNERS

“Photo is not merely a medium to preserve important events in our life, it is also a tool which we could use to align differences, hone sensitivity towards our surrounding, discover our identity, and also voice our opinions on matters which affect the community and many more”

Octavius, a Villager from Desa Labian, West Kalimantan
