Impact Through Photography

Penda Trust creates positive change through photography with 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.

What its like to intern for Penda

“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.”
