Yesterday we presented awards to participants of our Girls Voices for Change Program at Lagos City College, Sabo – Yaba, Lagos. The gifts presented to our participants were an award from our workshop-partners, Girls’ Voices for Change to support their education with schooling and study materials to help their studies.
Girls Voices for Change partnered with W.TEC for the 2nd year to empower school girls with digital photography skills for them to share their interesting stories online. The program also collated pictures from all the workshops conducted around the world for an international photo contest. Thankfully, one of our participants from the workshop emerged in a finalist in the top 40 and subsequently finished in the top 5.
The global photography workshop for school girls, tagged ”Girls Voices for Change” is an initiative of Girls’ Voices. The two month photography workshop involved training girls the art of story telling with photography to empower them share online matters that affect them within their communities. The workshop which is a global program of Girls’ Voices collated photos from all its participants for a photo contest which our girls also participated.
