From Dog Meets World:
The mission of Dog Meets World (DMW) is to give children/families in developing countries personal photographs, often for the first time. DMW seeks to change the way people travel by creating positive cross-cultural interactions and rather than simply taking pictures, to give them as well. Travelers bring along a digital camera, a portable printer and the stuffed Foto mascot dog to photograph children and practice Take & Give Photography! Practicing DMW is simple, affordable and fun and is ground level diplomacy and voluntourism for all travelers.
DMW believes that each single shared photograph creates a cultural connection and an indelible affirmation that is left behind as a personal artifact and a tiny seed of peace.
