In February/March this year Cameras for Asia will be visiting Burma and Nepal. As in previous years the project will involve taking donated camera equipment to children in Asia and teaching photography workshops.

The plan so far is as follows:
– teach photography to orphanages/youth centres in Yangon, followed by a public exhibition in a cafe/bar in the city (all proceeds to the children)
– teach photography to disabled children in Kathmandu, Nepal as part of motor skills workshops, followed by an exhibition for their parents
– teach photography to orphaned/disadvantaged children in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, followed by production of a 2014 calendar (all proceeds to the children)

Children during a photography class in Yangon.

I currently have about 10 donated cameras ready to take on this trip, but I would like about 20 altogether.

If you have an unwanted digital camera sitting in your drawer please consider donating it for this project. I also welcome:

– memory cards (various kinds/sizes)
– chargers
– cords for computer connection
– AA batteries
– any donations towards funding the cost of the exhibitions, prints, excursions etc
