Day 24 - Potential Business Idea?? I need your thoughts and comments

So this is something that I have been thinking about for a little while now, but manifested itself more yesterday during the gong gong. Whenever we go out to villages, the little children flock all over the obrunis. What is amazing is how excited they are to have their picture taken. They scamper to be the first ones to pose. And you should see them after the picture is taken and you show it to them. They get very proud as they point to themselves and say "that is me!!"

Many of these children have probably never had their pictures taken before, let alone had a picture of themselves. I have been thinking about how you might be able to take this idea and make it into a sustainable idea / business. I would like to solicit your thoughts / ideas about this. Please consider the following questions and then leave me a comment:

  1. Should this idea even be considered further? Would it be important for children to have a picture of themselves? If so, why?
  2. What ideas / thoughts do you have for making this a sustainable idea? (There would be costs associated with taking cameras out to villages. How could we cover these costs without having to rely on donations?
  3. Maybe their are organizations that we could partner with? If so, who?
  4. What other thoughts / ideas do you have?

As you think about this, enjoy some shots that I took yesterday of the children.
