What We'd Like To Talk About
I'd like strategic advice on gaining local and national Coverage that involves the story of my grandparents' 75th anniversary. Their lives, example and guidance inspire our work!
This anniversary celebration has been thwarted twice due to the pandemic! Yet, this is an impossibly feel-good story that has to be told.
Our work I know the world offers experiential, immersive education to students, like the travels I enjoyed with my grandparents around the world.
Their impact can be felt in our mission and values and I would love their story to inspire the world. Not to mention: raise awareness, gain support, and earn funds for our mission.
I think this has the makings of a wonderful holiday season story and sensation.
We just need to find the right way to weave it together and get some more traction.
I also want to approach some brands that have a very aligned sentiment and would like some help in positioning and moving this forward successfully. The brand piece may be for next year but I think we can try the get TV coverage for the story by this holiday season.
About The Org
Photo Start Foundation
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 fourteen programs across Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and the United States, 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!
