There are few moments in life where we have the chance to truly make a difference, touch someone’s life, and inspire hope. This is one of those moments.
Global Humanitarian Photojournalists (GHPG) was founded in November 2007 to document fallout from war or natural disasters, capturing the reality of lives in adversity, and inspiring hope through stories individuals who have overcome extreme adversity. GHP is a group of photojournalists who assist other non-profit organizations in documenting their work to create material that will attract funding for their activities.
GHP’s vision is to facilitate projects that can provide real solutions to complex problems; helping to eliminate suffering and improve lives around the world. For example, one of GHP’s documentaries focuses on a remarkable project begun by Dr. Anne Tafaro of Emergency Africa. The Flux Mothers Projectprovides basic education, job training, medical services and self-empowerment classes to women —and infuses their lives with hope. As apprentice welders, the women are taught to repair windows, doors, and fencing, and to sell their products to a construction company. Please visit the GHP Website to see amazing images of the Flux Mothers’ work. Be transported to the heart of Africa in Brazzaville, Congo, and journey with these women.
