S African society through lens of its youth

Activists use cameras to bring awareness in neighbourhoods facing high unemployment and crime.

    Young activists in South Africa have been using cameras to document social and economic problems in their communities.

    The photo club is designed to spread awareness in impoverished areas in the city of Johannesburg, which face high unemployment, crime and teenage pregnancy.

    Their plan is to also spread the initiative to schools across the country, and get young people more involved in the movement.
