Lensational is a non-profit social enterprise, founded on the International Women’s Day of 2013,
with the mission of equipping women from underrepresented groups and communities with cameras and photography
training so they can express themselves and represent themselves with dignity.
We believe in empowering women through photography. This includes:
- Emotional Empowerment: Gaining access to cameras gives women a new way to express themselves freely and to retain memories. Therapeutic photography is also a proven counselling technique to overcome social isolation.
- Economic Empowerment: Our students will receive 50% of the revenue once their photographs are sold through Lensational’s online platform and partner agencies. With photography skills, they can also pursue freelance photography opportunities.
Registered as a Non-profit social enterprise in HongKong our initial programs were launched in Hong Kong, Pakistan, and Myanmar.
