The 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.
Working with the children was an unforgettable experience and most satisfying. As well, the events exposing us to local culture were very well done and quite complete. I don’t think I’ve experienced such a well organized and executed cultural program.
I have never been more moved as a person than I was in Tanzania with The Giving Lens. I believe this trip will change your life for the better, and though it is a tough trip it is worth every second. I love my new friends and family.
I highly recommend traveling with The Giving Lens. You will get to see so much more on these trips that you wouldn’t otherwise. I learned so much about the culture of the country in Tanzania, and so much about photography. The leaders are so caring and smart and some of the nicest people I’ve ever met.
