Recruiting Organization: Fundación En Vía

Photographers play a crucial role in documenting the progress and development of our program, as well as putting together a visual record of the organization’s activities - in our education program, our growing strong program, our microfinance program and our responsible tourism program - and creating photographic content for our social media.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone to improve their Spanish language communication skills, have an enriching cultural experience and foster deeper relationships with community members in Oaxaca.

We currently work in the following communities within the Tlacolula Valley: San Sebastián Abasolo, Teotitlán del Valle, San Marcos Tlapazola, Santa Ana del Valle and San Miguel del Valle. You will need to be able to travel in public transportation.
