Our nonprofit had the privilege of working with A Face to Reframe. As we work with clients who can often be disenfranchised and who often experience stigma, this was an important opportunity to provide a venue of expression for clients that often does not exist. Additionally, this project provided insight for us into some of our clients' struggles and successes. This group appeared to be therapeutic to some of the clients involved. A Face to Reframe did a great job of adapting to the needs and lifestyles of our clients. This was exemplified by the facilitator's ability to adapt to communication styles and to the beliefs and values of our clients. I would highly recommend collaborating with A Face to Reframe, particularly for the reason that clients are provided with a refreshing venue of expression. We will definitely keep A Face to Reframe in mind for the future.
AFTR is innovative, genuine, creative, and effective in journeying with, celebrating the dignity of, and giving voice to the typically underprivileged, under-served, voiceless, and/or unrecognized. This organization is an agent of change in the direct lives of people and uses the simple yet open-ended tool of photography to do it.
AFTR's work is about touching individual people and about changing the way all of us see each other. I have been watching it from a distance and seeing the photographs made by the programs' participants - all of whom are socially invisible in their communities - changes the way I look at the people near me. Who am I not seeing? How does the world look to them? AFTR has the power to effect profound change by challenging how all of us think.
I have read many reviews of many non-profits, and what I look for before donating to one is integrity. Will they use my money the way they say they will?
I can assure you, A Face to Reframe will.
As a personal friend of Beth Bruno, the founder of A Face to Reframe, I am convinced of her passion and self-sacrifice to enable a voice for the voiceless, and a perspective from those who have been silenced.
There is nothing that gives hope to the soul like being listened to. Putting a camera in someone's hand gives them a voice. A Face to Reframe listens and amplifies.
