If you know me, you know that I'm a big fan of The Film Photography Project (FPP). (Click Here) to check them out.
 
Well, FPP supported a project called Picturing Wanteete, where Louise Rita Contino moved to a village in Uganda (Wanteete), and shared photography with seventeen of its residents. The cameras she used, all Pentax K1000s, were donated by FPP.
