Sonke launches PhotoVoice project at Jo’burg school

Sonke recently took its PhotoVoice project, a school-based initiative that aims to train learners to use photography and writing to document their daily lives, thus providing a look at the community through its children’s eyes, to Sheikh Anta Diop College, in Yeoville, Johannesburg.

The school has been selected for this project due to the considerable number of migrants and refugees that attend the school and that live in the surrounding community. Run by Sonke’s Refugee Health and Rights (RHR) project, the PhotoVoice initiative aims to help learners address issues that affect them, with a particular focus on health and social issues and advocating for the rights of refugees and migrants to access services.
