The Rwanda Project It began as a photographic workshop in 2000 for child survivors of the Rwanda genocide. Using disposable cameras, the children originally took pictures for themselves and to share with others, exploring their community, and finding beauty as the country struggles to rebuild via Jonny Baker

Thanks for this, Coop. I'm involved in organizing Toronto's 10th anniversary memorial of the Rwandan genocide, and there's a good chance we'll be hosting this exhibition or some part of it. Glad to see it linked here.

See also, art by child genocide survivors of Rwanda. Terrifying, heartbreaking material.
