Project India 2022

Photographing Nonprofits Workshop

India has a very special place in our hearts at Momenta and we are elated to return to the Northern city of Dehradun. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, this remote but large city is alive with nonprofit outreach and storytelling opportunities. It has been almost six years since our last nonprofit workshop in India and we can’t wait to document this region with you.

The beautiful nonprofits of this region have been fighting the coronavirus outbreak along with seasonal natural disasters, endemic poverty, and dwindling resources. Your work on this workshop will help them share their outreach programs with the world. By donating your images to these small, local nonprofits, you help them bring greater awareness to the lifesaving work they are doing to create a better, safer, and more peaceful world for their clients.

India’s nonprofits need you. Our previous India programs produced some of the most incredible images in the history of our company and helped to positively shape the communications model for many nonprofits in Dehradun. We are looking forward to returning to see how their programs have expanded and explore the work of new NGOs in 2021. The nonprofits benefit from your brilliant photos by using them to tell their story to the donors and you will learn real-world, in-the-field skills to document humanitarian issues.

You can be a force of change. On this inspirational workshop, you will be matched with a local nonprofit to create a powerful photo essay about their staff and mission. We will have lectures throughout the course, hands-on instruction, as well as daily one-on-one editing sessions. We end our trip together with a celebratory slideshow of the amazing nonprofits from your projects for the public. On the last workshop we hosted in Dehradun, more than 600 students, educators, volunteers, and nonprofit staff showed up for the final slideshow!
