A few years ago fifty disposable cameras were donated to Mujeres en Cambio. Those cameras were distributed to our scholarship recipients who were willing to take photos of important aspects of their daily lives in their rural communities and share them with us.
The photos that follow are some of the many hundreds of photos taken by these girls that illustrate their daily lives—family, friends, home, school, sports, chores and religion—as well as the some of the many challenges they face in continuing with school.
In many ways, their lives have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Theirs is not an easy life, but hopefully their futures will be brighter as a result of education.
