Mindo, Ecuador

For the past few years, Amy has been visiting Mindo, Ecuador and conceived, planned, and carried out teaching photography to kids at a disadvantaged children's home operated by the SALEM International folks ( Salem International Link. ) Many of Amy’s photographer friends in the US have donated cameras to her project.  See Amy’s link for more info ( Cameras for Kids in Ecuador ). Above is most of the group that went out on the walk.

Since Amy is usually the photographer instead of the photographee (not a real word), here’s a shot with her included for a change.

We walked out into the surrounding nature areas to give the kids a chance to try out the new batch of cameras.

This beautiful river is the Mindo River that thunders down from the surrounding mountains and rain forest and was the end point of the walk.

Once back at the SALEM facility, the kids all crowd around Amy as she uploads the photos for viewing on the computer.  Please visit Amy’s link or the SALEM link above if you want to know more about either effort.
