Presentation

The correspondance between France and Bolivia began during the first quarter of 2014. 12 children of the Maison pour Tous de St Pierre/St Julien (Martigues, France) and 9 children of the Villa Armonía library (ONG Ayni, Sucre, Bolivia) have been involved. The first photo workshop took place in Martigues (France), from 24th to 28 February. The second one took place at Villa Armonía, in a suburb of Sucre (Bolivia), from 8th to 17th March. Since April, the two groups of children start to exchange photos. A new groupe of children from the association Môm’Frenay (Réseau Môm’artre), in Paris, joined the project in November 2015. In March 2016, these children began a photographic correspondance with the child workers of the Connat’Sop organization, in Potosí, Bolivia. In January 2017, 10 children of the association/cultural centre Le Chaplin (Mantes-la-Jolie, France) have also been involved in the exchange with a first photo workshop.
