Foto’s Blog: Thanks for Giving in Ghana

Phodographer Amir Pelleg in Kumasi, Ghana

On this Thanksgiving week, DMW honors all phoDOGraphers who have taken their time to see and recognize so many children around the world. In 37 countries, this humble program continues to spread diplomacy worldwide and be a bridge of peace from Niger to Panama, Ghana to India, and now from Jamaica to Tibet. Starting with a single “click” – truly the power of one photograph transcends much and can bring real affirmation and a smile. Foto the dog is a symbol of peace and love and helps fetch all the photos.

Amir Pelleg was working as a volunteer consultant in remote cocoa farming communities. He said Dog Meets World was such “an exciting and rewarding experience.” These are kids from that community, thrilled to have their first photograph. Thanks Amir and all phoDOGraphers for bringing the Dog Meets World citizen photo diplomacy project to over 5000 kids and families.
