Evaluation of a Photovoice Pilot Project for School Safety in South Africa

This field report summarizes a process of evaluation of a Photovoice pilot project, targeting school safety in a public high school in an economically disadvantaged urban community in Cape Town, South Africa. To measure the success of the project, several outcomes from Catalani and Minkler’s Photovoice impact model were used. The evaluation revealed that Photovoice can engage students to think critically about their environments, and can raise awareness of school safety issues among teachers, parents, and police officers; However, the extent to which the Photovoice project will lead to concrete long-term changes in the school remains unclear.
