Every where I go people ask me about what they can do to get involved and help support my project and the work of the Global Press Institute. I am thrilled to say that our Kickstarter campaign is up and running and you can directly support our efforts in bringing cameras and photo training to our amazing women reporters around the world, as well as in the creation of a photo book and exhibitions to showcase their work and the story of GPI.
I felt the same way when I met Cristi Hegranes and learned about GPI, realizing that she had created that elusive thing, a program that brings long-term positive change to the lives of women in the developing world, and on top of that is creating a new model for international journalism. On both the global level and in the lives of the women it employs, GPI is a changemaker.
That is why I got involved as the photojournalism trainer to bring the power of visual storytelling to the talented GPI reporters, which we have now done in Nepal, Haiti, Cameroon, Kashmir, Argentina and later this month I will be going to Sri Lanka. Help us arm the GPI reporters at 10 more desks with new cameras and photojournalism training to give them additional tools to tell the powerful stories in their communities. And please consider sharing this with your friends and posting the link below on your social media pages. With much gratitude from the reporters and the entire GPI team!
