How photography is creating a future for street children in Uganda

A few words from Vanguard …..Vanguard is a global company that designs and manufactures tripods, bags, sporting optics, and accessories. For over 30 years, our drive to disrupt mediocrity and commitment to innovation has allowed us to create the highest quality, innovative and feature packed products for photographers and outdoor enthusiasts at an affordable price.

This includes total product ownership – from idea to finished product – for unmatched quality control. Growing into a global leader since its founding in 1986, VANGUARD provides more than our competitors because we are the factory. There are no third-party factories, development or design firms or other outsourcing of any kind in the process. More than 1,000 Vanguard employees create the products and power the brand within our robust global operation. Every step of the process is orchestrated by Vanguard’s in-house R & D, production, administration, marketing and sales teams in Vanguard-owned and controlled facilities. This enables us to ensure standout product quality and to eliminate “middle men.” The result is great value for customers and the ability to react fast to opportunities.

Vanguard founders credit our success to the people across the globe, who have given supportive and valuable feedback about product features and price points over our three decades. This focus on listening to the market’s needs and wants has inspired us to create products with first-of-its-kind features, notable reliability and impressive price points.

The success of this can be seen by Vanguard customer reviews on leading websites such as Amazon and Trustpilot
