Penda is a young social enterprise that uses photography to both create amazing experiences and to generate positive change. Penda Photo Tours offers photography workshop around the world; exciting trips that are completely focused on taking amazing pictures. People can, for instance, join Penda to photograph the Big Five in South Africa, to encounter Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda, to learn about street photography in Cuba, or to photograph Brown Bears in Alaska. All workshop are guided by professional photographers, who help participants improve their skills throughout the experience.

Penda also believes in the power of photography to do good. Through the Penda Trust, the organization uses photography as a tool to support important conservation and community projects in developing countries. This is done through the following methods:

  • Providing grass-roots charities with professional photographs that they can use to raise awareness about their issues and fundraise for their causes.
  • Hosting photography workshops for talented young individuals in underprivileged communities.
  • Highlighting important issues by creating and exposing great photography. We fund and organize expositions to present photography that would otherwise not be seen.

“I see the world of NGOs as a kind of Pandora’s box: once open, you can’t stay the same, to get involved in the amazing stories it enshrines is inevitable.”
