From the Shoot Europe web release:
"2016 has been an exciting year for us. We spent the first half of the year travelling all over Europe producing shoots, and then we went on an unexpected journey a little further afield… In June, we hopped on a couple of rather long flights and ended up in Kampala, Uganda’s capital city, to work on a project with a grassroots charity called Soccer Without Borders.
With a Photographer/Director and his assistant in tow, armed with a couple of cameras, a notepad, a $50 note for our visas and some sensible shoes, we helped to produce some imagery and a short film for SWB, with the aim of showing the rest of the world the awe-inspiring work that this charity is doing in Uganda."
SWB Uganda was set up in 2008 in Kampala by a small group of young refugees who found themselves some of the most challenging circumstances imaginable. After setting up their own refugee football team, they wanted to do something to help the wider refugee community. Read more>>
