Zanmi Lakay is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for current and former street children in Haiti. For over 13 years Zanmi Lakay has held photography workshops for street children. They learn to use film, pinhole, and digital cameras to document their lives. Their work has been exhibited in numerous cities, allowing the public to see Haiti through the eyes of its children.Fostering the children’s photographic talents not only boosts self-esteem and teaches practical technical skills, it also inspires change. Given a chance, empowering children enables them to improve their quality of life.
