NEW Phodographer Rob Willet in Kisii, Kenya, June 2010

Rob is a CPA from Los Angeles and volunteered on an international build for Habitat for Humanity in Kenya. He heard about Dog Meets World and enthusiastically embraced the project and recruited his fellow team members.

Rob’s said throughout the entire process, the adults and kids alike were smiling, laughing and enjoying their/our time together as well as playing with Foto and watching the photos print. Once we began to hand out the photos, the enjoyment continued as they were excited and overjoyed to have a picture of themselves and/or family to keep and share with others.

The moment I remember the most involved the village matriarch. She wanted to have a photo of her and all of the children of her village so we had them stand together for a group photo. Once we handed her the photo, she smiled from ear to ear, held the photo to her head, she looked up into the sky and started singing and dancing – which continued for around 10 minutes.
