About the Book
of the Dump, Writings and Photographs by
Children of Guatemala was a bicultural success and
recipient of children’s’ library awards. This book,
To Capture Dreams, is a small volume produced
by the Fotokids graduates and advanced students,
attempting to briefly cover what Fotokids has been
doing since then.
For over 15 years Fotokids, originally called Out of the Dump, has worked as a non-profit organization breaking the cycle of poverty through training in visual arts and technology. Fotokids also provides educational scholarships to over 100 students, all of whom live in some of the harshest economic conditions throughout rural and urban communities in Guatemala and Honduras.
