Photo Stories

Lauren Pond (photographer) and Grant Buhr (sound engineer) spent two weeks in Lyantonde, Uganda this summer to document the sights and sounds of everyday life in the community. Together, they completed four photo/audio stories. The first three stories were focused on vocational training centers that provide essential assistance for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Students at these training centers are taught marketable skills that offer children a sustainable form of financial stability.

The following video was the first one completed. It follows the work of students at a carpentry training center from harvesting wood to finishing a piece of furniture. The other three videos have not been finished. We hope to post the videos as they become available.
