Special needs girl in Cape Town
Phodographer Carolyn Lane in Macassar, South Africa Feb. 2009

While practicing Dog Meets World at an apartment complex, I was honored to be asked to go upstairs (3rd floor) to take a picture of this disabled girl. Her mother said it was very difficult to bring her downstairs and outside. Her body deformed, she could not walk or talk, but her modest and committed family had her so attractively dressed and her hair in beautiful ribbons for her first picture.

"Dog Meets World went over fabulously in my village. It is a perfect option for Peace Corps volunteers like myself. I like the Foto dog mascot, kids like it, and it is a representation of the peace and the ideas of the project."

Kristen Woodruff, Phodographer Costa Rica

"The kids are absolutely loving Dog Meets World. For a majority, these were the first images of themselves that they have ever owned."
