Shoot Cameras Not Guns is a non-profit (though not yet a 501(c)3) organization founded by Diana Sabreen in 2006 when she began teaching photojournalism to Burmese refugees, students and journalists-in-exile living in Thailand along the Burmese (Myanmar) border.
The organization focuses on teaching photography in conflict areas as a tool for empowerment through storytelling, accurate journalism and self-expression.
Shoot Cameras Not Guns is currently accepting donations of cameras (preferably digital, and all in good working condition), camera supplies (film, cases, batteries), money, and time.
If you would like to make a donation, volunteer, would like more information, or want to receive updates, please contact Diana@ShootCamerasNotGuns.org.
