Amina Mohamed, founded Cameras For Girls to change the lives of girls and women in Uganda, through the power of photography.
Cameras For Girls is a non-profit initiative born out of the sheer will to alleviate poverty for girls and women in 3rd world countries using photography as our medium. Every year when we operate our photo-tour to Uganda, we carve out three days to teach photography and business skills to girls and women studying journalism in Uganda.
We raise funds to purchase new and used cameras for the girls and teach them to use the camera to tell stories that matter to them. This tool helps the girls learn a new skill, advance their journalism careers, improve their options, and change their lives.
Since 2018, Cameras For Girls has worked solely in Uganda but have plans to expand our training to other countries where girls and women can benefit from this training.

Changing Lives Through The Art of Photography
A portion of each trip goes towards supporting our initiative. We are currently raising funds to purchase better cameras for the girls, computers for the editing lab and are actively looking for sponsors.
