Kate Havercroft and Colby BrownThe Giving Lens is an organization with a vision to see our three passions come together for a better world: travel, photography, and giving back. We do this by running one-of-a-kind international travel photography workshops, all of which are lead by professional photographers: during the trip we volunteer our time and talents to a local, grassroot Non-Profit; then we do workshops, shooting at once-in-a-lifetime locations most only dream of. We share the images, and the profits, with the NGO, and our participants return home, changed forever. It's an adventure; a journey; and a vision.

As a teacher who loves to continue to learn, TGL is the perfect balance of challenge, self-growth and experiential learning, all with purpose. I’d love to make this an annual goal, and perhaps grow into a TGL leader. My language skills and photography need work and I’m more inspired than ever to improve and grow.
