PROGGA

Knowledge for Progress

Visual Documentation

Photography and videography are gradually making their presence important in the field of development. PROGGA has developed specialization in both these components of visual documentation. Apart from providing these services independently, the organization tries to incorporate these documentation approaches in most of its programs. In other words, PROGGA considers visual documentation as an essential component of research and documentation based development initiatives. The organization is developing its own unique approach of ‘development photography’.

PROGGA uses visual documentation as a very effective vehicle of knowledge. It believes that a photograph or a video can at times communicate much more than hundreds of pages in writing. Thus visual documentation is at the core of knowledge centered initiatives of PROGGA.
