Fertile Ground provided kids living in the Comox Valley to connect with their counterparts in Assam at this year's fall fair. LeighAnn Vaughan, Onyx Vaughan-Ogilvie and Sarah Kerr brought along lots of art supplies for creating drawings and stories to share with children living in villages in rural Assam.
Sarah Kerr's images of young people in Assam using donated digital cameras to celebrate their culture and environment!
Earlier this year, photographer and Fertile Ground board member, Sarah Kerr, spent two months working with students in several parts of Assam. With cameras she collected from supporters in the Comox Valley, she provided instruction to teachers and students in basic digital photography. Here are some of her favourite images of Kids to Kids at work and play in Assam. Sarah worked closely with the Assamese NGO Prakriti-Save Nature on this project.
