Paraguay Through Children’s Eyes

A Kansas-Paraguay Partners & Peace Corps Project
January 18 – February 14 2011
This exhibit features 30 photographs taken by rural school children from Paraguay. In a unique and highly successful project, U.S. Peace Corps workers in Paraguay teach basic photography to rural school children who then use borrowed digital cameras to capture scenes from their communities. The best photos are exhibited annually at five venues in the nation’s capital, Asuncion.
Through the Partners of the Americas organization, Kansas and Paraguay have been linked as partners for over 50 years. In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Paraguayan independence, Kansas Paraguay Partners is proud to collaborate with our Peace Corps volunteers in Paraguay to bring you these creative, fascinating scenes of rural life there as seen by children.
