NEW phodographer Becca Cohen in Augua Prieta, Mexico, March 2010

Children helped with the printing process for Dog Meets World at an orphanage in a Mexican border town. The children at the orphanage ranged from six months to age fourteen, and none of them have any family. The kids were excited to add a personal photo to their small collection of personal belongings.

Becca is doing an internship with Dog Meets World and introduced the project to her fellow students on an alternative spring break trip with Hillel at University of Maryland, College Park. One participant remarked that “witnessing a child’s face light up after owning… a picture of himself was a breathtaking experience“.
