Instructor Thomas Leuthard: Street photographer supporting street kids

Udemy instructor Thomas Leuthard is a street photographer from Switzerland whose Udemy courses help other aspiring street artists around the world hone their craft. He prides himself on sharing his full knowledge with his students and keeping no secrets from them.

Thomas has seen great financial success through Udemy and wanted to find a way to share a portion of his earnings with others in need. He found Burundi Kids, a nonprofit organization that supports children in Burundi, and pledged to donate the first €2,500 in sales of his new course Contact Sheets: Begin to take & select great street photo (German version: Kontaktabzüge: Wie ich eine Szene auf der Strasse erarbeite) to the group. In less than 10 days he was able to collect and donate €2,570. On top of that, Udemy has contributed an additional €500 through our Social Innovation program.

It only costs €25 to buy school materials for one child for an entire year through Burundi Kids, so Thomas and Udemy will be supporting more than 100 children with this joint campaign. Read more about the project in Thomas’ own words here.
