A picture is worth a thousand words! We are bringing you the proof for that!
An Erasmus plus youth exchange that happened in Bulgaria (Dolna Banya) from 08.10. – 19.10.2016 wants to present you photo stories of our little heroes that fight with life obstacles every day! We made photo interviews with children and young people having hard life but big smile on their faces. We interviewed refugees, Roma children, children from orphanages, and young people with many social, economic and cultural obstacles.

Gathering participants in love with photography from 6 different countries; Bulgaria, Lithuania, Croatia, Macedonia, Italy and Romania we present to you our online photo exhibition which you can find on http://ye1000words.wixsite.com/1000words

You have more than 40 photo stories so please be our guest and enjoy them all.
Online photo exhibition is follow-up of photo exhibition organized in Bulgaria (Dolna Banya) during the youth exchange.
