About

I am helping Joseph from Nairobi, Kenya because I believe he needs a small push to help him be self-sustaining. I met him in 2018 while in Kenya. He is hard-working, loves his community, and has compassion for those around him. I have been impressed with his diligence in all tasks I've asked of him with photography.

He is the primary supporter for his 3 siblings and his parents. Both parents are unemployed and are unable (or unwilling) to help the children. 

This kickstarter will enable him to buy a quality camera to begin capturing the beautiful scenes around Nairobi. He is a gift photographer and is already capturing great photos with his old phone. 

 Joseph says: "I Joseph Koya am hereby requesting for your support in helping me buy a camera worth ksh 160,000 for doing photography business so that l may be able support my siblings with their studies since my parents separated and we were left with my mother who is currently unemployed and struggling to provide for us all. I have three siblings to support one in college another in high-school and  another in primary school,your support will be of great value to me so that l may be able to pay for their school fees and their basic needs, in buying a camera will help me to stabilize all of this responsibility may God increase you as you plan to assist me ware you can.

Risks and challenges

Joseph lives in Nairobi, Kenya and has sent me over 100 photos in the past months. This campaign will help him purchase a higher quality so he can improve the quality of his photos. He has a great eye for capturing moments. Our goal is to send the photo book before December 2019, but Joseph does have some occasionally internet-access challenges.
