In 2011, children from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Uganda used disposable cameras to take pictures that illustrate the role they play in their home and community, and the kind of support that they receive from their communities.
Entitled "What I do for my community, what my community does for me", the photo exhibition emphasises the importance of community-level action in the care and support for children made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS. By giving children the opportunity to show how they also contribute to their communities, the exhibition helps to empower children and dispel the assumption that African children are powerless victims of the HIV and AIDS epidemic. The exhibition traveled to the International AIDS Conference in Washington, DC in July 2012.
