The Nseabasi Photography Concept is a community based non-profit organization using photography and its artistic process as a catalyst to educate and empower vulnerable children and youth ; Photography has the ability to empower and bring awareness to issues that can elevate public understanding and compassion and gives voice to inconsiderable issues and those who would otherwise never be heard.

After the success of our last year’s photography road trip from Ibadan to Banjul, in the Gambia. Made several stops in some major cities to collaborate with local artist, youth centres and schools to organize photography workshop, photo walk, artist talk, exhibition and exchange ideas in the Republic of Benin, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Serria Leone, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, the Gambia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.

The project was aimed to create awareness and call the attention of policy makers in Africa Union that arts can be used as a tool to educate and empower youth. And also, to teach the youth how to use art as a medium to express and communicate for positive social change in our various communities. ‘’When youth have a meaningful handwork to bring in a legal income, there is a reduction in poverty, crime rate and tendency of wanting to travel to Europe through illegal routes’’.

There is great pride when creating something of your own design, so many would put their minds to creative use, instead of the reverse.

This year we will be embarking on another Photography Road Trip from Ibadan, Nigeria to Windhoek, Namibia. Making stops to collaborate with local artist, youth centers  and NGOs to facilitate photography workshops for street children and unemployed youth in Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.

”Empowering youths is the strongest weapon to change the world for the better”.
