100cameras is a non-profit that seeks to empower disadvantaged children around the world by equipping them with cameras and teaching them photography. 100cameras launched in 2008 with a project at an orphanage in South Sudan. Subsequent projects have taken place in Cuba, India, and the U.S. At the conclusion of each project, a selection of photos taken by the children are added to the 100cameras online shop—proceeds from each sale are routed back to the community in which the photographer resides. To see more photos, check out 100cameras on Instagram. You can also support the project by donating, adopting a camera, or volunteering.
