I made my first trip to Uganda in 2006, as part of a photography and film workshop. My plan was to learn how to become a photographer for NGOs and then travel the world to do just that. What happened instead changed my life in a very meaningful way. I fell in love with the children at an orphanage in the small town of Kajjansi. When I came home, I decided to dedicate myself to the children there, and I started a not-for-profit group called "Change the Truth." Over the course of the next 13 years, we raised over a million dollars to help feed, clothe, and educate the kids. We built a new kitchen, put in gardens, added solar lighting, created a marching band, installed a computer lab, and I brought over more than 75 volunteers to teach yoga, art, sewing, music, photography, etc. We hired a full time social worker to live on the grounds and work with the children on a daily basis. Oh, and all along the way, I made photographs.
