A behind-the-scenes photo taken by one of our students during our Photo Camp in Melkadida Refugee Camp in Southern Ethiopia. “She initially didn’t want her picture taken,” says student photographer Abdirashid Aydid. “So she put her camera up to cover her face. And then I took it. Now she likes it when she saw how beautiful it is. The clouds, the wood frames, the different colors, the flow of her hijab.” Melkadida Refugee Camp is home to more than 42,000 refugees from Somalia, 20 of whom were our amazing students on our latest Photo Camp. They learned to tell the stories significant in their own lives through photography.  Our Photo Camp in Melkadida was produced in partnership with @internationalmedicalcorps  , @refugees  , and @LilyDonaldson  , and was instructed by @edkashi  and @erikalarsen888  .  Photo credit: Abdirashid Aydid

Our latest Photo Camp was in Melkadida Refugee Camp in Southern Ethiopia, close to the border with Somalia. Melkadida is home to more than 42,000 refugees from Somalia, 20 of whom were our amazing Photo Camp students. They learned to tell the significant stories in their lives through photography. “I wanted to include all of the houses in the camp,” says student photographer Jelle Ali. “[This photo] makes me happy. It’s beautiful and it also shows how we are living... I didn’t know the kids in the picture, but I greeted them, and now I know them.” Our Photo Camp in Melkadida was produced in partnership with @internationalmedicalcorps  , @refugees  , and @LilyDonaldson  , and was instructed by @edkashi  and @erikalarsen888  . Photo credit: Jelle Ali. #Ethiopia#Somalia#Refugees#RefugeeStories

On the second day of Photo Camp Mongolia, our students journeyed to the steppes of Töv, just outside of the capital city, Ulaanbaatar. They captured traditional nomadic practices and customs in action, as portrayed by Mongol Nomadic, to help tell the story of their cultural heritage and the common transition from a nomadic to an urban lifestyle in Mongolia.

We’re back from Photo Camp Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia, where we helped our students explore their city through a new lens with photography. Our students worked with @natgeo  photographers to tell stories of rural to urban migration, cultural heritage, and transitioning from a nomadic lifestyle to life within a city.  Our partner on this camp was Lantuun Dohio (@lantuundohiousa  ), a non-profit organization based in Mongolia and the United States that is working to combat human trafficking and child abuse by creating a safe place for Mongolian children in Ulaanbaatar.

Nayeli Perez, one of the 8 student participants of the Philadelphia Photo Camp, shared her perspective of the watershed and how it relates to the community she is a part of. “I live near and work in one of the tributaries of the Delaware. The creek is in really bad shape. On average, raw sewage gets dumped into Tacony Creek once a week. Anything you can think of finds its way into the creek. But setting that aside and focusing on what we've seen this week, people love the water. They love how accessible it is in the city. They love swimming in clean water and taking nice pictures by a waterfall. But for most people, the appreciation doesn't go beyond that.” For our 100th Photo Camp in Philadelphia, in partnership with the @LenfestInstitute  for Journalism and hosted by the @PhillyInquirer  , our students became part of our Joint Watershed Reporting initiative by turning their cameras to the Delaware River Watershed to explore what it means to their city. Students examined its environment and ecology, and its significance to Philadelphia economically, recreationally, culturally and as a resource. Photo by: Nayeli Perez

As student Kelvin Nuñez reflected about something new he learned about Philadelphia, he highlighted that the city is teeming with life. “I used to think it was a nice place, but I had not thought about how many stories are truly out there. I met so many people with different takes on the city. Everyone has a story, and in trying to tell the story of the Philadelphia watershed I learned you had to first tell the stories of the Philadelphians.” For our 100th Photo Camp in Philadelphia, in partnership with the @LenfestInstitute  for Journalism and hosted by the @PhillyInquirer  , our students became part of our Joint Watershed Reporting initiative by turning their cameras to the Delaware River Watershed to explore what it means to their city.

Throughout Photo Camp Philadelphia, we encouraged participants of our 100th Photo Camp to capture how the local community interacts with and impacts the Delaware watershed. Here is what one student had to say: “...many don’t realize that trash in the river is one of the results and consequences of not knowing how to take care of our city and treat it with care.” For Photo Camp Philadelphia, in partnership with the @LenfestInstitute  for Journalism and hosted by the @PhillyInquirer  , our students became part of our Joint Watershed Reporting initiative by turning their cameras to the Delaware River Watershed to explore what it means to their city.

This image was taken during our Photo Camp Louisville’s visit to Hotel Louisville, an organization whose mission is to help the city’s homeless. The students had the eye-opening opportunity to speak to the hotel staff, most of whom were previously homeless, have completed a recovery or training program and have now found work at the hotel.  We partnered with @jcpsky  to teach Louisville high school students new ways that they can share empathy through photography. Students worked with @natgeo  photographers @dominicbracco  and @tomas_ayuso  . Made possible with support from @insidenatgeo  | Photo by Robrina Rodgers (@robrina.lynn  ) #WeAreJCPS
