Mentorship Program to Ghana
February 5 - February 12AUD1,699
The NGO Photographers Alliance is excited to be holding a Mentorship program with partner organisation The Anidaso Nsae Foundation (TANF) Ghana, a NGO that works to support the neediest members of society by providing access to education and affordable healthcare. The flagship objective of TANF is in providing sponsorship to children who are in extremely needy circumstances or who are orphans, enabling them to attend school and gain access to basic healthcare which help in curing or preventing early childhood diseases. This sponsorship helps them break out of the cycle of poverty that many children, who are often used as child labour for very little pay and in terrible conditions, are trapped in beyond their control.
This Mentorship program, scheduled for the 5 – 12 February, 2018, is an intensive 8 day program combining photography workshops, private 1 on 1 mentor feedback sessions as well as participation in NGO-related activities in conjunction with TANF Ghana. Participants embarking on this Mentorship Program will travel to Accra, the capital city of Ghana, and visit the office of TANF Ghana to engage the staff and local community members in photography and videography activities. As part of the itinerary, a day will also be set aside to allow participants time for cultural sightseeing with a visit to the important landmarks in Accra, including Independence Square, Osu Castle and Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum.
At the completion of the Mentorship program, participants should have sufficient material to begin putting together a portfolio of NGO-related photography. In addition, participants may be invited to feature their work in the pages of our affiliated travel publication The Travellist magazine.
