"Ojos Nuevos" Photography Program
Help support a digital photography program for disadvantaged youth in Santiago, Chile
Ojos Nuevos: exploring distinct ways of thinking
My name is Christine Mladic, and I am a photographer from Chicago, USA who currently lives and volunteers in Santiago, Chile through a non-profit organization called Voluntarios de la Esperanza (VE). VE places volunteers into shelters and homes for children who have suffered neglect, poverty, and abuse. We support the permanent staff and implement educational, cultural and recreational projects where resources are scarce. I have recently started a pilot photography program at San Francisco de Regis home for girls, but we envision the project to be much larger and include many more children. Because I want to keep the program as low budget as possible, digital photography equipment will prove more cost effective than using film. We are seeking all levels of support. Your donation will help us cover costs such as back-up batteries, better memory cards, transportation for excursions, printing costs so the girls can show off their work, and hopefully a laptop computer. Many people would greatly appreciate any help you can give, and I encourage you to forward this site to others you think may be interested. An enormous and sincere thank you in advance for your contribution.
