Participatory photography project: Pakistan
WaterAid, as part of its advocacy efforts, engages groups of stakeholders through initiatives to increase understanding of the significance of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and relate to these issues in an interactive and informed manner.
The anthology attached compiles the outcomes of engagement with young students in Pakistan as artists, using interactive learning exercises in photography with the aim of capturing stories related to WASH. All the stories in the publication are rendered as seen through the lens of young learners. In the process, they attempt to bring a personal approach to WASH through narrative experiences. The stories are accounts of hope as well as deprivation; struggle as well as motivation; adversity as well as human efforts mobilised by WaterAid for overcoming the barriers to reach everyone, everywhere with clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
