The NATGEO Photo Camp in partnership with Newest Americans, Talking Eyes Media, Ed Kashi from VII Photo Agency hosted a five-day immersive workshop in Malta for a selected group of 20 refugee youths aged between 18 and 30. Participants were taught to use photography and storytelling to show a glimpse of their life and their refugee experience.

At National Geographic Photo Camp, young people from underserved communities, including at-risk and refugee teens, learn how to use photography to tell their own stories, explore the world around them, and develop deep connections with others.
