Teach photography and creativity to underprivileged teenagers with the aim to let them take photos for on their fair trade greeting cards.
We train teenagers in photography, sell their best photos on greeting cards and offer the photographers a fair trade price for their sold photos.
FairMail is a social enterprise producing fair trade photo products.
The photos on FairMail products are taken by Indian, Peruvian and Moroccan teenagers. You see the face, name and age of the photographer on the back of each card. FairMail offers this youth photography training, a medical fund and guidance in making their future plans. The teenagers get 50% of the profits of the sale of their own photos to finance their housing and education.
Since 2007 we have trained 52 teenagers who have earned together a total of more then 150.000 euros to invest in their education and housing.
