Project Details

What We Need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional Details

Training of the Trainer- if we develop this kind of program internally and then offer it to partners, is that colonial? I would love to focus on Diversity Equity and Inclusion. How we can get out ahead of any of these concerns- diversifying our board, having more of our leadership reflect the communities we serve... and so on.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a strategic plan..., which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a number of partners we can interview and involve, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to continue to provide our programming free of charge to our students.

We are brokering more partnerships and as we expand, these issues will be more and more relevant. And, I would love us to be ahead of the curve on these concerns.

Our Mission

Photo Start makes a difference in the lives of children from underserved communities by teaching them life skills through photography.

What We Do

"A Future in Focus"
Photo Start prepares students to create their futures by using photography to teach them critical skills, helping them find their voice, and supporting their growth.
Founded in 2016, Photo Start partners with schools and community organizations to operate free photography programs for students ages six and up.

We believe that knowledge is power and teach students the tools they need to break the cycles of poverty and unemployment into which they are born.

While we currently operate seven programs in Nairobi, Kenya in Kibera, the largest informal settlement in Africa, and in the Western Cape of South Africa, we are expanding to reach as many students as possible.
All of our programs are free to our beneficiaries, and are made possible through generous in-kind donations of equipment and financial support.

We use an 'Each One, Teach One' model, where students mentor and teach one another as they advance in our program.

This gives our students a chance to develop their leadership and communication skills, while also making available new and exciting work opportunities.

We hope you'll join us in our mission to bring joy, hope and opportunity to our students!
