The Eye of the Street project contributes in a new way to the social inclusion and affirmation of children who live and work on the streets.
We are launching the Eye of the Street project with a desire to introduce photography as a way of drawing the attention of the community to the children who live and/or work on the streets, and assume a new approach to the social inclusion of these children. The project is based on the idea of offering the beneficiaries of the social inclusion program a possibility to take a more active part, or actually a greater initiative in their inclusion in society. In that way, they as the end users of the program become its active participants, expressing themselves in a creative and efficient way, telling their life stories, showing their perception of the surroundings. Each workshop participant will be given the necessary equipment, a mobile phone with good camera features or a digital photo camera, which will help them take photos of their everyday life.
