Daily Foto: High Schoolers go to Nicaragua

NEW Phodographer Lara Levine in La Estrella, Nicaragua Feb. 2010

The Dog Meets World project was taken with a teen group from buildOn, a terrific nonprofit that seeks to empower youth through different national and international service opportunities. Lara Levine led 16 mostly urban high school students from all over Connecticut to a village called La Estrella in Nicaragua to build a school and learn about the local culture. What is an easier or more fun way to make additional connections than to practice Take & Give photography with Foto? Here is 16 year old Stephanie Davis with her new friends in Nicaragua!

Lara said of Dog Meets World, “The only issue for us was that on top of everything else we had to do during our time in the village it was a little time consuming but it didn’t matter cause it was so great!” Thanks to all the new student phodographers from buildOn!
