Every week, we do our best to tell you the story of Five Talents, its mission, and the communities where we work.
Much of what you'll find here in the blog and on the Website are summaries of what we do and stories about those who have benefitted from our programs.
However, Web users are increasingly looking for visual storytelling as well.
Perhaps you've already discovered that you can spend hours on a site like Pinterest. Maybe you've downloaded the Instagram app to your smart phone. Both of these exploding platforms are hubs for people who love to share photos – and view them.
That's why, in recent months, Five Talents has made an effort to establish itself on each of these networks. On Instagram, for example, you can find exclusive shots from our program in Uganda by photographer Thomas White. On Pinterest, we have created "pin boards" featuring our favorite books, quotes from the field, and more.
If photography and visual story-telling is your thing, we hope you'll follow us and share our content.
Click here to view our Pinterest boards. If something catches your eye, you can support Five Talents by "liking" and re-pinning the photo on one of your own boards.
If you have a smart phone with iOS or Android, you can download the Instagram application, or "app". Once you've set up your account, you can follow Five Talents and "like" our photos by double-tapping on them.
In the coming months, we plan to leverage these unique platforms for some very cool campaigns – including art contests, virtual puzzles, and more.
If you'd like to serve as a volunteer with one of these coming campaigns, please let us know by signing up here.
