Kenya Community Centre for Learning (KCCL) is a non-profit community school providing alternative education for students with diverse learning challenges such as dyslexia. The school provides assessment and therapy services, holistic education, training, and relevant support systems to help learners realize their highest potential.
Photo Start is proud to be working with 26 students aged 14 – 18 to develop their creative talents using photography and videography. We are also helping them build confidence and find their voice so that they can create a bright future for themselves.
KCCL recently participated in #GoRedForDyslexia – a global movement to promote a greater understanding of dyslexia. The 2021 campaign invited everyone to get creative with the color red and raising awareness of dyslexia in school and in their community. We gave Photo Start students their first documentary assignment to cover this special event.
“WOW” is the only word for the final images produced. You can see for yourself the love these kids have for photography and for each other.
We are not the only ones impressed. Read what those closest to the students think of their work and the Photo Start lessons:
“Your program has added immense value to the campaign. The photo exhibition by the kids is an endorsement that the children have extraordinary talents. We were just blown away by the photos. You are an answered prayer and I thank God for bringing you and your amazing team of GG and Zach into our lives. Baraka tele.”
“Thank you for bringing this program to our children. My son cannot stop talking about it, and he’s very excited about Thursdays and Fridays. You have given me hope that there’s more for him.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to develop their talents and creativity outside the classroom. You have given them the perfect opportunity to explore within, and we don’t take this for granted. May God bless you and your team for this.”
By encouraging our students to show love to each other through sharing and mentoring, we are nurturing empathetic, compassionate citizens of tomorrow. Working with partners like KCCL ensures that we reach students of all levels so that no child is left behind.
In addition to online fundraising, we can guide you in planning charity events such as exhibits, auctions, and equipment donation drives. Please contact Abby Lehman to start planning any of these very special family projects.
