Help us change worlds with photography.
Firefly Children’s Home and Prisoner’s Assistance.
A Photographers Without Borders production.
DEARTING: MARCH 25 - APRIL 15, 2019
Every child deserves to live with dignity.
We’re using the power of photography to show how one organization in Nepal has created a better reality for hundreds of orphaned children.
As a Photographers Without Borders associate, it’s my mission to ensure the children and families supported by Firefly Children’s Home are portrayed in an honest light.
Many of these children, known as Fireflies, have faced devastation in their family infrastructure. In most cases, their parents are incarcerated—disrupting their sense of safety and self.
Firefly fills this intimate yet widespread gap by taking personal responsibility for the development, happiness and wellbeing of each child.
Firefly Children’s Home works to empower and support prisoners and their children through various programs:
- Sustainable solutions
- Education opportunities
- Welfare support
- Crime prevention
Regardless of the circumstance, there’s a real need to educate and nurture children in Nepal. All children, regardless of race, ethnicity, social or economic background, deserve to be raised with love.
I’ll be working in the field to create in-depth stories on Firefly Children’s Home. I believe my efforts will have a positive ripple effect on their community, Nepal, and even the world.
By amplifying the voices of those who are most vulnerable, we gain humbling new perspectives and become the force for change.
