K.I.D.S. (Knowledge, Independence & Development of Skills) - Director and Co-funder

K.I.D.S is an educational N.G.O. that was established in Ireland in 2007 with the objective of supporting Argentinean children living in poverty to remain in school through the development of after school programs. KIDS founders believe that education is an indispensable way to transform reality.

K.I.D.S stands for Knowledge, Independence & Development of Skills.

The aim of these after-school programs is to stop the ever increasing number of children from dropping out of school, who are growing up on the streets and instead help them grow in an environment where they can develop. K.I.D.S. is looking to raise funds for these programmes and awareness of this growing problem.

Flor Saluzzo photography - Photographer

I was born in Argentina and, through my grandfather, I got the passion for photography. I studied Photography in the Media and did all sort of seminars, workshops and specializations in photojournalism and documentary photography. Luck, Karma, God or Destiny (whatever you believe in) made me move to California where I had the best experience I had so far, to work for the Ansel Adams Gallery at the same time as doing my own personal project on illegal immigrants working in the fields of Salinas.

Since I arrived in Dublin I have been very busy following my other life ambition creating a non-profit organization to help children in poverty in Argentina ( However, photography is an inseparable part of me and continues to be my passion. I have taken part in art exhibitions and worked on various photographic projects and fullfilled several photographic trips.
