In September 2013, Lensational partnered with Sheed Society, a NGO that provides free education to the children of sex workers in Lahore, on a photography project. Eighteen children aged five to 17, seven girls and 11 boys, took part in the three-hour workshop. It started with the children introducing themselves by drawing a picture, then they were split up into groups with one volunteer each and given their own disposable cameras.
