In collaboration with Photo-journalism department of Amity School of Communication(ACOS) Save the Children organized a Photography training of CiSS by Students of Amity School of Communication.
Around 20 children from Slums in Lucknow attended the training. This gave the Amity Students a chance to meet and interact with the children living on streets and also provided a glimpse of the life of a CiSS and their dreams and aspirations.
Through the workshop the children of Kanshi Ram Slum Basti in Lucknow got to learn the art of photography and used the camera to capture their lives and the change they wanted to bring. On the other hand not only did the students of Amity University train the CiSS in a skill they could take up as their future profession but they also got to the opportunity to capture the lives of CiSS not only in the slum bastisthey were training the CiSS on photography but from the entire city of Lucknow.
The students took on the mission and captured images of CiSS from the entire city of Lucknow, each shutterbug from the Photo-journalism department at ACOS clicked various facets of a child’s life living on the street.
