The heART of A Woman Project

The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW):

In May 2013, I founded a women’s mobile photography development initiative, The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW)I am the director, principle photographer and mobile photography educator. It is my passion project and am working towards making it a non-profit organization.

THOAW is a small grassroots initiative that partners with non-profit organizations to provide education in mobile photography, technology, and social media to women and mothers impacted by poverty.

It aims to empower women to have a voice, a creative outlet, and sustainable income through the sales of photographic art products.

The Pilot Project and mobile photography program were implemented at eKhaya eKasi Art & Education Centre in Khayelitsha, a township outside Cape Town, South Africa in November 2013.

Visit eKhaya eKasi, a non-profit Art & Education Centre in Khayelitsha, South Africa and go on a photo walk with THOAW South Africa project coordinator Nwabisa and immerse in township life.

eKhaya eKasi is easy to get to if you’re driving or plan a visit with Uthando South Africa and request a visit to eKhaya eKasi, tell James & Xolani that I (Andrea) say hello.
