You can expect to receive a warm welcome by one of our Photography students.
Our address is at 519 Calle la Libertad, 1 1/2 blocks west of Bridge Papa Q. We look forward to seeing you!
EI’s photography program began in 2007 when Kathy Adams and a guest instructor hosted a 5 week-long photography class for 8 of EI’s older students. Since that time, the program has been expanding. In 2008 14 children were selected to participate in the class, which took place in July. Several of these students have continued to participate in weekly classes since that time. Many other students have shown an interest in taking part in the class. The benefits of the photography program have been great. The staff have witnessed participants’ attitudes change. Many attend school more regularly and have gained the self confidence that so many of EI’s students lack.
Update 2012: We are proud to announce the students have their own gallery and you are invited to visit!
Currently the photos are exhibited at Hotel con Corazon in Granada, Nicaragua and at their own gallery.
