Eyes Of The Street: from Stigma to Esteem's picture

Imagine children and young people residents of urban communities at social risk and excluded, being able to share their views from a collective experience, where photography and video become tools of social transformation.
That's the objective of Project Eyes of The Street, which will result in a film to give voice, empower and unleash the creative and innovative potential of children and young people suffering from the lack of opportunities in poor urban environments worldwide.

Over a four week period, a group of children living in chronic poverty in Recife, Northeast of Brazil, where 35% of the population lives in poverty, will embark on a journey that will transform their lives. They will tell their stories while learning photography and video.

The images they make will be catalysts for dialogues about their rights, needs, individual and collective resources, dreams, expressing the challenges and problems they experience every day. The pictures and videos made by the children will be part of a film that will document this creative and engaging journey, which aims to directly empower these children, encourage critical thinking, build self-esteem and promote inclusion and social action.

This project needs your help to exist. Please visit Eyes Of The Street crowdfunding page http://bit.ly/1HGROM7 to find out more about the project, how you can help, and to donate. You can rest assured that your generosity will reach out for these children directly. Please share the campaign with your network, friends, and family. Thank you!

Please donate or share with others who can!

I am a math/science teachers at a year-round school. We start school in 3 weeks and I am trying to secure materials for all my students. I have received some items, but not enough for both of my classes of 5th graders (about 48 kids). Your donations would help purchase binders, dividers, pencil pouches, and clipboards. One of my goals is to teach my kids organizational and study skills so they are prepared for the independence and responsibility in middle and high school.

Please support by donating to my donor's choose project - http://www.donorschoose.org/project/organizing-for-a-new-year/1576341/?r...

THANK YOU!

I teach 2nd grade at a high poverty school in East Oakland, CA. I'm trying to get 8 tablets funded for my classroom so that students can access the Reading A-Z/Raz Kids app during small reading groups and independent reading time. This will allow them to read books that their independent levels more easily. Giving students access to books at their independent reading levels is one of the greatest ways to grow their reading skills. Additionally, our school is without a school library so students only have access to books in the classroom. These tablets will expand the collection of books they can read greatly.
Any donation or sharing of link would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!!

Hello. It is my first year teaching as a full-time science teacher! I look forward to teaching and incorporating the next generation science standards-along with the crosscutting concepts (and STEM). In my classroom, a typical day involves analyzing scientific and relatable quotations, along with a mini-lesson and laboratory report with an emphasis on reflection and critical questioning.

People can help if they supply any donation they feel is necessary to contribute to the students learning. Students don't need to only learn the content but also have access to multiple modalities of learning and this comes with choices in education! We appreciate and welcome any donations. We look forward to having a successful first-official year as scientists.

The information is as follows: https://life.indiegogo.com/fundraisers/1325330/x/11192344?fb_action_ids=...

We would appreciate any help.
All the best,

I teach high school science classes and want to educate my students about cancer, which can be a really scary topic for teens who have family members battling the disease. We are a small, rural school with many financial struggles. We recently laid off a lot of teachers and cut many of our hands-on elective classes. I strive to make my classes hands-on as possible with what we have. Any support would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...
