Beacon of Hope Uganda partnered with TGL in 2017 and The Giving Lens led a team of about 10 photographers to Uganda who offered basic photography skills to the children and youth of Mukono.
TGL is a travel Photography Company which supports local NGOs & CBOs across very many needy communities.
The Giving Lens vision’s is to see the three things they love most come together for a greater good: love of travel, passion for photography, and deep desire to give back to those in need.
Its vision comes alive when they partner with amazing organizations like Beacon of Hope Uganda in developing nations, who are at the grassroots level.
A number of cameras from TGL participants and laptops from Pragmatic Works (a company associated with one of the TGL volunteers) were donated to us, and this has improved the way we work.
The community and children showed a lot of interest in the project and this year, another team will visit to continue supporting the projects.
The Giving Lens financial support will be used to support the Hope Mixed Farm project, which grows food to support the needy children under our care at Hope Children’s Academy school.
For her part, Ms Sandra Nakagiri, the Executive Director of Beacon of Hope Uganda, said that partners like The Giving Lens, are exactly what BoHU needs to continue its service delivery to needy individuals.
Thank you TGL!
