In June and July 2012 the students of EducAid Lumley, EducAid Rolal and EducAid Maronka took part in a project to learn photography. The stories of their lives in Sierra Leone along with their ‘snaps’ have been published by one of our most valuable volunteers, Irena Przybyl, in a book entitled .Our World, Our Eyes, Our Imagination’.
The children are extremely gracious for the help they are give, but incredibly excited about the book they are contributing to, which will help them to help themselves.
Out of the 85 children involved, only four had used a camera before. The work they produced is of a very high standard, showing life at school, traditional and interesting Sierra Leone, their homes and their communities.
The books are now available to buy! They are beautifully put together and tell a real story of children’s lives in Sierra Leone. It is a great way to support EducAid and to have something to share with friends, equally it would make a wonderful gife – simultaneously supporting our work in Sierra Leone and spreading the word of the charity.
The book retails at £15 plus £2 postage & packing.
