Child Education. Teaching and Encouraging self-expression, creativity, and confidence through photo education.
Join professional photographers Colby Brown and Ken Kaminesky on the journey of a lifetime through historic Jordan. We will be working alongside the Iraq Al-Amir Women Cooperative Society which provides special training projects for women in the capital city, Amman. From learning to make beautiful crafts, handmade pure soaps, chemical-free hand-made paper, stunning pottery, to quality fabrics, the Cooperative Society provides women with the opportunity to create sustainable income for their families. Funded by the Swiss Government, the Cooperative Society has been helping women in Amman since 1993. Join our team to support this Society, visit where the women are working, and take photos of their crafts and work for publication on their website and promotion materials. We will also take part in photo workshops at locations most photographers only dream of: the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum dessert, the lost city of Petra (celebrating it’s 200th anniversary since it was rediscovered!), and the ruins of Jerash. Sound like the trip of a lifetime? It is! Apply today.
