Gender in Focus – Photovoice Project

Beginning in 2014, Children Lead the Way launched a Photovoice project titled Gender in Focus in two implementing countries, Bolivia and Kenya. Photovoice is a powerful participatory tool because it enables participants to share how they see the world – and factors impacting the equal rights of girls, boys, women and men – through their own lens.

Here, girls and boys participated in workshops on life skills, gender equality and photography, and then were provided with digital cameras to capture priority gender considerations in their communities. Gender in Focus explored gender equality with girls and boys engaged in work to strengthen their understanding of key gender considerations, learn from their perspectives and experiences and support participants in being advocates and active agents for positive transformative change to address gender inequalities.

This gallery represents a selection of photos and stories developed by girls and boys across 6 communities in Bolivia and Kenya.
