A Face to Reframe partnered with the organization that I work for, Prax(us), to provide an intensive participatory photography clinic to the youth with whom we work who are in or vulnerable to domestic human trafficking situations. AFTR did an amazing job in developing, implementing, and following up with the workshop. I was very impressed with Beth's dedication and flexibility in working with a population that is very difficult to recruit and engage in projects like this. I truly appreciate AFTR's mission to help marginalized folks become the authors of their own stories through photography.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not a thing!

A Face to Reframe is tackling the root issue of poverty and injustice by empowering the powerless and allowing their faces to be seen in a way that restores their God-given dignity, value and worth.

Through partnership with organizations in developing countries, AFTR is uniting the global community. Through establishment of specific AFTR projects in the states, AFTR is raising awareness of human trafficking that is occurring in our own back yard.

As founder and director of the work known as Kardelen in Turkey, I am so grateful that Beth Bruno and AFTR came and facilitated an absolutely mind-blowing and amazing week with poor children struggling with physical disabilities, their siblings, Kardelen service team members and yours truly. Some of these awesome children testified at the end of the week that their felt differently about life as a result of having participated, but we as adults can honestly say we feel so different about these kids and their gifted-ness, honesty, emotional vulnerability and passion to tell their stories. Beth drew so much out of all of us and left us with the skill and excitement about carrying on this project again with more kids.

I listened to the kids tell their stories and describe the why's and why-nots' of their photos. Saw their pure joy when they were handed certificates at the end of the week as well as their reluctance to leave the Streams of Mercy Center on Friday afternoon. They begged (as did we) Beth to come back!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of a thing I'd change but give me some time. I'll come up with a suggestion or two:)
