Sarah Ann Loreth [1] published a report in Flickr Blog on how US photographer, writer and educator Brooke Shaden [2] joined forces with an organization called Blossomy [3] to travel to Kolkata, India, last year to help teach photography to survivors of human trafficking, giving them a chance to learn to create and tell their stories. The next step [4] is to:

bring a school of photography to Kolkata, India in which the individuals going through those shelter homes have access to free education in exchange for a certificate in photography as well as the opportunity for a future in a career that can provide confidence and hope.
