Based out of Montreal, The Daniel Malka Photo Project‘s mission is to use photography to work with marginalized and at-risk children around the world. After 20 years of experience in advertising, editorial and fine-art photography, founder Daniel Malka decided to use his energy and expertise to work with children in need during their critical stages of development. Focusing on children between the ages of 7 and 15, the project works with local NGOs and organizations already in place in various countries to provide digital cameras and training to these young photographers. Besides encouraging artistic expression, the training will enable children to use photography as a way to document their lives from their unique perspectives and to communicate ideas locally and internationally. The images will be exhibited around the world, and the funds will be redirected back to the young photographer, his or her family, or the affiliated group.
If you have digital cameras you would like to donate to The Daniel Malka Photo Project, please check out their support page.
