NEW College Phodographers in Mangueira, Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil, March 2010

Students from the Univ. of Maryland College Park, members of the Hillel organization, spent their spring break doing volunteer work in impoverished areas of Rio de Janeiro and brought along Foto and the Dog Meets World project. Melissa Waksman states the value of the project “Every single human being should have a picture of themselves because a picture speaks a thousand words and memories are so important for happiness.” A shout out to the group for making a difference!
