Starting the Kamerakidz-project had (between others) the motivation that I agree with projects asking for donations not much. The other side is usually a needy counterpart and not the encounter not on an equal perspective. Selling the products of the Kamerakidz, the money arrive in a more equal way tothe children, their families and the schools. Also they have a public audience..
But there was still something in me that wanted more: The connection with tourism. So when my buddy Siddharth started with Everday Rajasthan I thought about a short itinerary:
On 2 of 5 days the travellers would visit with the children their world. The children will have cameras and click photos. We will choose the 13 best and produce a calender – after the sales the benefit will go directly to Chandelao. So some families will have a better share of financial and ideational participation in tourism.
The travellers would have another access to the village and will have travel-experiences of a different kind. Each living environment is unique and it is worthwhile to have a deeper insight. How else should we have a better understanding and accepting of each other if we wouldn’t be able to see the world from a different perspective?
So far the theory. Together with the travellers I’ll see how my idea works out. There I look for pioneers to set about. And even if it would go a slightly different direction: We will experience together. Experience something. The spirit of starting something new. Like pioneers;-) With the goal to create a Win-Win-Win-Situation:
So: booking quickly and join the tour!
