Photography Workshop for Non-formal School Teachers September 2013

Mission: Empower women through photography, as a tool of expression and education. Women, who hold “half the sky”, are still oppressed today. Launched in 2013, Lensational is based in Hong Kong, empowering women through photography. In August 2013, Lensational expanded into Pakistan. We are proud to partner with the Citizens’ Commission for Human Development for a series of photography workshops. Lensational has been awarded the Resolution Fellowship by the Resolution Project, a US-based NGO. It has been featured by press in Hong Kong, Australia and Indonesia.
