We want to create changes in the communities where we have worked and lived
U imagine Photo Studio develops different social responsibility projects working with local communities and groups at risk of social exclusion. For this reason we have contributed altruistically with:
Special Olympics Dominican Republic, helping in create for them a strong image collection that depicts the excellent job this NGO develops in the Dominican Republic (Special Olympics sports are bringing together millions of people with intellectual disabilities, supporters and volunteers, creating a healthier, more respectful and welcoming world for all).
Juanillo is one of many Dominican villages that have been relocated for touristic development. The developer of the area built a beautiful inland village for Juanillo. But villagers lacked the knowledge and resources to maintain the new community. The result: a rapid deterioration of the buildings and infrastructure – and a breakdown of what had been a thriving community of 300. (Resource: Colibri Partners.)
We participated in creating awareness on urban recovery with some images, and we also enjoyed teaching computer skills for two months in the public local school. We had the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with 8 to 14 years old children that are lacking a proper education.
