Funder: David & Lucile Packard Foundation

What We Did

  • Identified young men and women living in New Delhi’s slums, trained them on photography and family counseling, and helped them set up photography studios
  • Guided the photographers in reaching out to adolescents and youth in the community and offering them counseling and referral services using photography as a platform for interaction
  • Met adolescents and youth where they are, and connected them to counseling and services during important life stages when informed reproductive choices and access to contraception are critical—all while enabling the photographers to incubate a sustainable business
