The ONE-SHOT Project non-profit initiative bringing opportunity through vocational training to children living in adverse conditions. We provide photography and multimedia training, while teaching peacemaking values to children.
ONE-SHOT has two strategies.
The first is short-term, based on workshops which supports local organizations, groups, and schools that are already working with children in adverse situations.
The second, a long-term goal, is to use these workshops to identify talented children and support them with care, education, and training so they have an opportunity to become professional visual communicators.
This is a great project we are proud to partner with in Iraq. The One Shot Project takes kids in Northern Iraq and teaches them photography. If you want to know more about this project click here.
