The Giving Spirit of Postcards

Here's my latest Fabulous Find~
FairMail is a company producing fair-trade postcards and greeting cards in Peru and India
The photos on FairMail cards are taken by Peruvian and Indian underprivileged teenagers. The photographer gets 50% of the profits to help pay for studies and housing. On the back of the postcards there is a profile of the specific photographer.
This was taken by Dhiraj Kanujiya who is 17 and lives in Varanasi, India and his desire it to become an
"IS officer which is a high ranking government official that makes important decisions and heads individual districts. I want to do this job to make sure that my city is being taken care of."

 Star Kite
This was taken by photographer Cinthia Vega Inga who is 19, and lives in El Milagro, Trujillo Peru. Cinthia  is going to school to become a tourist guide.
This was taken by Photographer Mariluz Saldana Rodrigez who is 19 and also lives in El Milagro and aspires to be a bookkeeper or a police officer.
