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


A small group of Swazi photographers is growing Help-Portrait in Swaziland and 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

Ok folks, we are days away from an awesome set of events: time to tidy up and firm up travel plans!

Please shout back on the wall what you're thinking/planned/cooking up. ;-)
