Vision for Empowerment is a series of inspirational photography workshops that provide education and empowerment to women living in disadvantaged parts of the world. Vision for Empowerment is a project facilitated by photographer Sarah Annay, who has partnered with Her Future Coalition, a nonprofit based in Kolkata, India that offers education, shelter, and job opportunities to survivors of human trafficking and at-risk women and children.
The goals of Vision for Empowerment are:
- To provide art therapy for women and to use photography as a medium to share their visual narrative with the world
- To focus on portraits that empower and promote positive body image
- To create new opportunities for women living in poverty and introduce them to visual arts & design
- To employ women in photography, a male-dominated industry in Kolkata and most of West Bengal. We are currently planning a job program with Her Future Coalition.
