Event Description

Swaziland Weekend Away

 

Ubuntu Help-Portrait shoot for orphans and children at various orphanages, care centres and community venues in Swaziland.

 

This is the second-year our Exchange initiative and the development of a Help-Portrait chapter for Swaziland.

 

A group of Swazi photographers is willing to start a Help-Portrait group in Swaziland. Our visit is to share with them how we do it and encourage them to kick-start their group.

 

Portraits will be taken at local orphanages and homes for children and various community centres.Summary of itinerary
