A community photo project designed to help restore our faith in the world, inspire hope for the future and raise awareness of mental health issues

In support of

(HOPE x ambition) + education = a better future

by Victoria Denison

I took this photo while travelling with Shivia, a registered charity operating in rural West Bengal, India. The families we help there are living in extreme poverty and have very little in the way of material possessions but what they do have is an unwavering belief that education is the route towards a better life and opportunities for a brighter future. I think the photo shows the hope in this young girl’s eyes. Despite the difficult conditions she and her family are living in, I was sure that if we spoke the same language she would have told me, “One day I hope to be a doctor or a teacher.”
