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.
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.
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.
