Today was the second time I visited the JAFON center in Patan. As with the first visit, the children and youth at the center were more interested in posing for the camera than anything else. They did appreciate the photos that Rene had printed the night before, and I plan on bringing more from this visit the next time I go.
After about half an hour of posing for the camera in front of the center, in the center, on the side of the center, and in back off the center, everyone finally seemed to start to notice me a little less.
I was able to photograph the youth sorting and weighing garbage, as well as playing caroms and sleeping. I hope to come back during the day when they are having class and watching television as well document the youth’s time away from the center.
