Transforming Community through Photography


Isaac Biosse, a Kenyan-born Ghanaian photojournalist, is also a social entrepreneur.

He has worked with several companies and charities. He is now the founder and CEO of Aboki Foundation. Aboki is a Hausa word meaning "friend".

His foundation has impacted the lives of more than 400 learners in schools in Kibera. He says that honesty and an unwavering willingness to transform the lives of those in need are the key qualities required of anybody who is interested in doing charity work.

Isaac also argues that young talented people hoping to make an impression in the society must possess a lot more than just the required skills.

Isaac's brand of photojournalism is unique, where he does not just click away when he sees interesting subjects, he also offers help whenever he can.
