Photovoice Project - 2011

In 2011, Aarti volunteers learned from former University of Wyoming professors Kent Becker (now at Saybrook University) and Bonnie Zare (now at Virginia Tech) the art of Photovoice, a community-based approach combining storytelling, photography, and group meetings. With the help of staff, they applied this approach to create a project highlighting the unique experiences of the girls of Aarti Home. Participants took their own photos and wrote their own stories.
