Welcome to Through the Eyes of Hope

Photojournalist Linda Smith first traveled to Rwanda in 2006 where she spent much of her time behind the camera. The Rwandans were captivated by the photographs that Linda took since many of the children and adults she photographed had never seen an image of themselves. Linda recognized the potential that the camera held for the children, by not only providing them with documentation of their lives but also allowing them to experience a sense of joy and fun.

What we’ve been up to 

In November 2009, one of the beloved photography students Emile Iradukunda passed away. It was always Emile dream to become a photographer.
We have set up a college scholarship in Emile's honor. If you would like to contribute to that please donate at www.fracturedatlas.org/site/contribute/donate/1979 and send an email to teohproject@gmail.com stating that your recent donation wants to go "The Emile Fund."
