Gizzim Community Organization exists due to the understanding of the positive impact of photography in the society to change lives. We work with refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan. We also work with young vulnerable youth from Kenya. Being deeply moved by the stories of these youth was the reason why the founder and director was encouraged to venture into photography with the youth, assisted by volunteers.

What we believe

The youths have the potential to bring solutions to problems affecting them and the society. By the use of the camera, they can disseminate information about humanity and nature, record the visible world and extend human knowledge and understanding.
