Through the Eyes of Children - Rwanda

The Imbabazi Orphanage was home to more than 400 children. Many of these children's families were killed during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide Against the Tutsi. Others died of disease when they fled to the Congo as refugees. The orphanage was founded in 1994 on Rosamond Carr's farm, Mugongo, in the hills of Mutura, near the Congo border. Nineteen children from the orphanage, known as the “Camera Kids,” participated in annual workshops in Rwanda starting in 2000 when the children were between the ages of 8 and 17. The photos were taken with 35mm disposable cameras, and, starting in 2005, digital cameras.
