One Child Maters is an amazing NGO that works with Sponsors around the world to help underprivileged kids go to school and gain an education. Me and 5 other photographers, went on a trip to the Northern region of Kenya called Turkana. We were the first American visitors to the region in over 10 years. We spent 5 days photographing the people and experiencing their culture. It was truly the most impactful trip of my life. We left Africa, with a hope to help as much as we can. We were able to sponsor an amazing 3 year old boy named Emuria, who’s nickname is Lapaz. On our last day in Turkana, we had a couple hours to journal and process all of the amazing things we had experienced. The amazing little boy sat down next to me and held my hand for over an hour. He just wanted to hang out with me. Now, Maria and me sponsor Lapaz, and now he will be able to go to school and help his family and culture in the future. OneChildMatters is one of the most incredible organizations in the world and I would highly recommend sponsoring a child to help make a difference in their life!
