Student using Kenyan Sign Language to recite her alphabet at the Enkijape Primary School located in Mbirikani, Rift Valley, Kenya. Each year I do my best to volunteer photography services to a non-profit in need of visual communication materials to help in fund raising and spread awareness. I have just returned from a volunteer photography assignment for a foundation named Big Life Foundation working in the Mbirikani Province of Kenya, Africa. The foundation's primary focus is to support 300 wildlife rangers to protect wildlife from poachers and human conflict when animals leave the protection of the Amboseli National park. The foundation also supports many community projects such as Education and Wildlife Scholarship Programs, which financially supports school children with their school fees, uniforms fees, and boarding expenses. During my visit I was given the privilege of photographing 3 schools, one of which has a special needs classroom. Due to low funding there is a lack of good quality photographs to show the needs of special needs students. The photos will be used for fund raising, newsletters, website and annual reporting
