Out of our 15-word exercise: Fear by Pierre Jeffte.

Every Person Has A Story (EPHAS) began when founder G. Ryan Ansin was
asked to document a water project in Rwanda.
Rather than sending him just to film, Ryan suggested an innovation ā€“ teach
local people to take photos to show firsthand how the project changes their
lives and community. The organization agreed that beneficiaries could more
clearly and honestly depict change than any visiting photographer.
So began EPHAS Productions, a non-profit organization based in the United
States. We are dedicated to bettering lives around the globe, especially in
underdeveloped countries, and committed to connecting people through
photographs.
EPHAS trains local people to take photos and teach photography, and supplies
each ongoing program with digital cameras, batteries, suitable paper and
printers to share their story with the world, including partnerships with U.S.
schools to help our children better grasp the global world they will inherit.
EPHAS is presently at work in Haiti. This photo was taken today!
