Virtual Photo Walks (VPW) was founded in Canada by John Butterill, it is a charity that harnesses the power of the internet and mobile communications to enable the disabled infirm and those isolated and hospitalized – young and old – to visit distant places. Using Virtual volunteer guides equipped with a smart phone's the disabled can participate in immersive, real-time experiences of places they will likely never see first-hand an African safari, a war veterans’ reunion, a hike in the forest. Participants are connected via the internet in real-time via video and voice, they can interact with each other and their virtual photographer guide in the private video conference. It is secure and moderated. – an extraordinarily interactive moving experience. Please watch the movie on the virtualphotowalks.org home page produced by Google to understand what we do.
