Look at where you are now

The video presentation, shot on location, is part of the AusAid and Red Cross advertising campaign for the AVID program.
Photo shoots were conducted in several locations throughout the capital, as well were interviews filmed with NGO staff, professional participants in the program and the Under Secretary of Red Cross Uganda.
One local NGO involved in the AVID Program is Straight Talk, which is a media outlet that produces newspapers and radio programs for youths across the Uganda, tackling social issues such as health, hygiene, HIV, STDs, contraception, domestic violence, drugs, education and employment. The primary motivation of this organization is to teach and empower youths to live a productive and rewarding life.
The AVID program provides one with an extraordinary opportunity to travel deep into an African culture, one that is as fascinating as it is beautiful. Case in point are these photos taken by Smashed Compass team members below.
