Overview

In February I traveled to volunteer in Uganda and Ethiopia to produce four documentaries for local charities. The purpose of these documentaries is to empower local organisations in the work they are already doing.

This volunteer trip has been supported by CameraPro Australia through the 2018 Explorer's Grant.
