Claudia Paul is a german-born photographer based in Harlem, NY - She specializes in editorial and commercial portraits. Whenever she gets a chance she likes to pursue her passion of working with Non-Profits and help them spread the work by documenting their causes. One of these great organizations is "Artists for World Peace". You can find out more about what they are up to on their website: http://www.artistsforworldpeace.org


Two years ago Claudia went to Africa with AFWP to document their work at an orphanage in a remote village called Kibosho-Umbwe at the bottom of Kilimanjaro.
Artists for World Peace has been working to improve the education, health and living standards of orphans and villagers in Tanzania. This grassroots organization brings artists together to change the world, one person, one family, one community at a time.
Watch Claudia’s video of her trip in 2012:

Much has happened since and the team is going back this July, 2014 for a little over 2 weeks.
Exciting news:
- A team of eye doctors will be joining this year to set up a temporary eye clinic at the brand new health center.
- A public television producer/editor and an award-winning writer will be joining the team
- Middlesex Hospital has donated hospital beds for the health center
- Bikes for Kids has donated bicycles for the orphans and villagers
- Mission Soccer has donated soccer equipment to build a soccer field

Claudia’s way of giving her talent to better humanity is through her photographs and video. Please help her travel to Tanzania this summer so she can continue to raise awareness and tell AFWP's important story. In addition to the documentation of this great organization, Claudia's imagery is an important source of promotion that AFWP uses for fund-raising.
