we learnt the basics of photo-journalism.

Last month, we were lucky enough to welcome the OURVOICE project to Akkar with the help of fnf Lebanon and Syria. Over the course of a week, a group of our talented kids from two neighbouring refugee camps were taught the basic techniques of storytelling, using photography and videography as a medium. The idea was to offer these young voices the chance not only to find and share their story, but equally to find stories in the environment around them.

Every day, the students attended workshops, and were given phones to capture their worlds through their own eyes. The result was a beautiful collection of stories, each told by the student themselves, highlighting not just the reality of the camp, but their reality of a life in displacement.

This first final is a video filmed by Haitham and Mohamed (pictured) together, and is entitled, ‘This is our camp.’ A big thank you to Sara, to Erol, to Aboodi and to Fnf Syria and Lebanon for making this happen.
