“Photos of Hope and Courage” from Nicaragua

nicakid.jpgEmpowerment International is a worthy non-profit organization, based in Colorado and Granada, and working with poor children in the outlying communities of Granada. Here is a beautiful post from the EI blog:

“A photograph can speak a thousand words. It can show that you do not require the most sophisticated cameras to capture the true essence of a scene. It can also show that you do not need to be a professional to make poetry out of an everyday activity. And, most importantly, it can show that children with no means or exposure can wield their cameras like paint brushes and create masterpieces out of the drudgeries of life.”

The EI website is filled with wonderful prose, inspiring images, and all kinds of ways to get involved, from volunteering at home and abroad, to making a donation. Enjoy: [LINK]
