Kids & Kameras was created by Karolina Karlic as an exchange learning program for non-profit outreach organizations and professional artists. Her extensive experience teaching photography through non-profits over the past ten years has helped Karolina to understand the importance of connecting professional artists to their own communities, and to communities abroad.
In 2011, Karolina and Helping Others Worldwide performed a three week photographic workshop in Sierra Leone, Africa, at the All As One orphanage. Through the fundraising efforts of HOW volunteers, and donations by Samy's Camera and generous individuals, the Helping Others Worldwide team was able to take digital cameras and art supplies to the children of All As One - supplies that they would normally not have access to.
We had the distinct honor of helping the children use these tools to express their creativity and to discover self-expression through art.
