Scott Kafora

When Scott Kafora was six years old, he set his sights on being an architect and achieved his dream. A graduate of  Marshall High School, he went on to receive a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Texas Tech University and used his skills in business management, manufacturing and logistics with the intention of earning enough to pursue another dream, to give back more and take in less. Over the next ten years, he sold his house, truck, clothes and practically everything else so he could travel and refine his photographic skills. He has traveled through more than 30 countries volunteering for the rights of oppressed women and children, working as a freelance photojournalist and teaching English.  Today he lives in Kolhapur, India and is working to design homes, schools and curriculum for rescued child laborers and victims of female human trafficking in India.  He sits on the Board of Directors of the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute and is involved with the Western Maharashtra Child Rights Campaign and the Women’s Empowerment Movement in India.
