We are KIOO Project.

Pronounced “KEY-oh,” our name means ‘mirror’ in Swahili and was chosen to remind us about the power of reflection—literally & figuratively.

We advance gender equality in economically challenged communities by teaching photography to girls who, in turn, teach photography to boys. Girls build self-confidence while improving their leadership & presentation skills, while boys respect & value the girls in their communities. Global gender equality is more than a “girls only” effort. It can only be achieved when both girls & boys understand the importance of living as equals.

With a camera in their hands, our students are inspired to unleash their creativity, celebrate their individuality & change gender dynamics around the world.
