The power of photography is something that we take for granted. Images are often a celebration of life. They connect us, preserves our memories, documents history and allows us to express ourselves every day. We can learn from the beauty of photography; its power lies in its dual role as both an art form and way to record facts. A picture speaks a thousand words, and that’s reason enough not to ignore photography.

PhotoVoice’s vision is for a world in which everybody has the opportunity to represent themselves and tell their own story.
PhotoVoice’s projects include working with the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. Their mission is to deliver a series of participatory photography workshops in three countries Uganda, Myanmar, and Nigeria, in support of PITCH, one of the Alliance’s programmes – Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV Response.
PITCH aims to strengthen local organisations’ capacity of an advocate, generate evidence and develop a robust policy for upholding the rights to HIV and sexual and reproductive health services for men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, people who use drugs and adolescent girls and your women.
