  • 'Discover, Explore and Document', using photography as the means to do so

  • Develop projects and skills that can help participants understand or change their lives or their environment

  • Encourage children, young people and adults with different abilities or learning challenges to have fun with photography

  • Help participants gain confidence in themselves and their abilities - and develop talents, skills or resources that they can use in their future.

  • Enable those who are often, not from choice, the subjects of photography, an opportunity to take their own photographs

  • Involve children, young people or adults who are often over-looked

  • Encourage children and young people to pursue further studies  and discover untapped skills

  • Provide economic benefit by selling images produced by participants in photo projects

  • Most important - photo projects are fun, collaborative and participatory for everyone involved!
