After serving as the translator while the Dog Meets World photo team was in Haiti in April, Denis instantly took on the role of photo printer (above, left). He was immensely helpful and took the project to heart watching the children of Haiti receive their first photographs! When we departed, we decided to set up Denis with the equipment and supplies to continue with DMW. Challenging access and troubles uploading his photos have been resolved and now this one (above, right) and over 100 other photos have been received!! How exciting. Click on the map of the world on the right hand side of this blog (scroll down) and take a look at all of his pictures. Your donations help support in-country phodograhers like Denis.

"Participating in Dog Meets World was a truly magical experience, bringing joy and wonderment to all I met."

"You will never know just how important that photo will be long after it is taken and given."

"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."
