What does life look like through the eyes of a child photographer? Several sponsored children in eastern India were given cameras and a chance to find out.
We gave several children in Burkina Faso disposable or digital cameras and asked them to take photos of their lives. Looking at these photos, what do you think matters most to the children who took them?

There’s life in it.

I’m going to Mexico as a co-leader on a…
