Para mim o workshop foi muito interessante porque aprendi muita coisa relaccionada com a fotografia e nao so, fiz muitos amigos, aprendi e ensinei o pouco que ate hoje sei.
Durante duas semanas terei muitas fofos, entrevistei algumas criancas orfas da associacao reecontro que participaram nom workshop, oque foi bom para mim porque conheci as suas estorias, o seu dia-a-dia e mais.

Sendo eu uma fazedora de programas infantis de radio saberei como comunicar os ouvintes sobre os problems que dizem respeito a todos e que afectam na sua maioria as criancas caso concreto da grande doenca que e o SIDA que deixa muitas criancas orfas como estas que comigo participaram no workshop, criancas estas que de certeza tem e terao uma historia para contar, saom responsaveis de familias com os seus 17,18 anos.

Gostaria que esta iniciativa nao parase por aqui porque no futuro teremos grandes-pequenos fotografos.

Translation from Portuguese to English:

For me, the workshop was very interesting because I learned a lot of things related with photography and not only that, I have made so many new friends. I learned and I taught the little I know until today up to now. During these two weeks, I took so many photographs and interviewed a few orphans from Reencontro who took part in the workshop. It was good for me because I had the opportunity to review their stories.

Working for children's radio, I feel I now know more how to communicate to my audience and tell them about the problems that affect most of these kids, who in this case, lost their parents through AIDS, which has made so many orphans so far. For the kids who participated in this workshop, I believe these kids who are 17 or 18 years old and who are responsible for taking care of their families have a great opportunity to tell their own stories in the first person.

I would be so glad if this initiative should continue. If so, in the future we will have great young photographers.

When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
