Phodographer Marti Johnson in Kampala, Uganda January 2010

Marti, a recent college grad currently lives and works within St. Mary Kevin Orphanage, a facility home to over 150 orphans. Her job is to coordinate our child sponsorship program which provides for the basic needs to the children. Marti’s passion for photography led her to develop Project Perspective, a separate program to teach photography to the children in order to provide the world with a new perspective of African youth (Project Perspective).

These are some of her Primary Six students. To teach them about Dog Meets World she took and printed their pictures. She asked the kids in her photo class about owning pictures. For a majority, these were the first images of themselves that they have ever owned! The students are excited to share DMW with other children as student phodographers.
