We believe photography can create change.
At Penda Trust, we believe photography can be a force for good. It’s a medium that can communicate, inspire, and transform.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, we use photography as a way to generate positive change. We do this through skill development workshops, photography projects for grass-roots charities, and awareness campaigns. Join us on this photographic journey!

Let's Trade - Prints for Impact.
We have curated a new selection of stunning prints that we are selling to fundraise for our Ibali Photo Club! Featuring images from photographers Emil von Maltitz and Lucia Griggi, this is an incredible way to hang some impact on your wall.
We offer free professional photography to grassroots nonprofit organisations in South Africa. It gives the organisations powerful visual tools to raise awareness for their social impact, environmental, or wildlife conservation causes.
