Thank you for your contribution!
What is this about?
I'm very excited to be selected by Photographer Without Borders (PWB) to help document the work of One Prosper. Founded in 2010, One Prosper’s mission is to empower women to break the cycle of poverty by enabling them to engage in income generating activates, such as growing vegetables/pomegranates, and using them to feed their families and selling surplus to markets. Their goal is to provide women of the Thar Desert of India with the correct equipment and means to do this, to enable women to become self-sufficient for life.
Who am I?
My name is Joanne Chui. My photography and international development career began simultaneously in Swaziland. I fell in love capturing the song and dance of a traditional wedding but also wanted to show the perseverance the nurses have in an under resourced HIV clinic, where I had learned that taking medication was more complex than medication being free. It was then that I wanted to share these stories and enable the organizations to continue doing the work they do. In international nutrition, one of the ongoing themes to the complex picture of alleviating poverty and malnutrition is women empowerment. The health and well-being of women also directly benefit the family. I'm excited to be able to help One Prosper and join my two passions of photography and development work.
I hope you'll join us on this journey with One Prosper whether it is through donations, support, or simply learning more about the organization.
To show my appreciation, here's what you can get.
- Contributions of $50 or more will receive five 6x4" prints of your choice
- Contributions of $100 or more will receive a 12x8" poster print of your choice (in addition to above)
- Contributions of $250 or more will receive a 18x12" poster print of your choice
The photographs and video footage will be used to provide donors with visibility on how their donation is making an meaningful impact to these women's lives. Thank you for your support! See below for details on where your money goes.

About Photographers Without Borders
Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible.
You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).
Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to raise their program fees and subsidize or cover these necessary project-related expenses:
- Health Insurance
- Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.
