Students use The Everyday Projects to gain a broader understanding of life around the world, and then apply those lessons to their own lives, telling the stories of their own communities through photography. Our curriculum, designed for middle school and high school, encourages students over several classroom sessions to learn about stereotypes, photography, representation, how journalism is made, and truth in storytelling.

Curriculum created in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting

With our partner PhotoWings, we are currently designing an updated curriculum to adhere to USA Core Curriculum Standards, a series of instructional videos, and an educational e-book version of the Everyday Africa book. Check back soon!

Your presentation has shown me a side of Africa very contrary to what the media has been telling me. The media has portrayed Africa as a violent place full of disease and political turmoil. You have shown me, however, that despite its fair share of problems, there are some parts of the continent where the people are peaceful and live simply.
