Cameras For Girls Equips Marginalized Females

Cameras For Girls believes in empowering females through photography. We believe in equipping marginalized females in the developing world with photography and business skills. We give her a camera to keep and teach her how to use it to tell stories that matter to her. But we don’t stop there. We also teach her business skills, to help her get a full-time job in the journalism sector – a sector that is mostly male-dominated.

Cameras For Girls Looks Back at Our First Training in August 2018

I survive these days, remembering my first training that took place in August 2018. I first came up with the idea back in August 2017. At that time, I left a 15-year career in film and television and had embarked on a new career as a mortgage broker. I was a very successful mortgage broker, and I had even won a few awards, but I was not satisfied as the call of photography kept beckoning to me. However, I was not prepared to leave my well-paying job to just take photos for a living. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that, and in fact, I do that with my other business Amina Mohamed Photography. On a personal level, leaving a well-paying job had to mean I was changing lives through the power of photography.
