Impact   The methodology of participatory photography was unknown to all the participants, what made the exercise very exciting for everyone. The sharing of the work in Facebook was important because participants could show share and receive feedback from relatives and friends.
Lessons learned  The activity must take place in one day and not dispersed for 3 sessions in order to keep motivation on.
