Thika , Kenya - Photographer & Videographer - Siân Wright

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my upcoming trip to Thika, Kenya with Photographers Without Borders! 

About me:

I am a professional cinematographer and photographer who specializes in documentary filmmaking and photojournalism. I moved to the United States from North West England at the age of 14, and as an immigrant I have a particular passion for creating images that confront social misconceptions. I use color and tone to capture culture, location, and emotion, focusing my work on that single frame in time where environment and individual collide.

About the project:

The purpose of this project is to document the work of the Karibu Centre in Thika, Kenya. This organization offers pre-school, after school programs, and job readiness training for underprivileged families. Since change happens at the community level, their programs not only engage children and youth, but also empower parents, driving change throughout the whole community. I will be documenting this work for fourteen days in September and visiting local villages, daycare and other key programs within the organization.

The Karibu Centre’s mission resonates with my own belief in the importance of empowering communities as a whole. For a child to have the most opportunity they should be a part of a healthy environment and be able to return to a healthy home. By providing both an education to children of all ages and job training for families, it creates a chain reaction towards bettering the community from the inside out.

Why is this important?

The need for content is more important than ever. These services often come at a cost, widening the gap between those with and without resources.

In a world where we often see the same images repeated over and over, my objective is to highlight the stories less told and give a voice to those without one. I believe in narrowing the gap of inequality and empowering those most underrepresented. 

Together we can help this community to flourish, as well as lead by example for others to create positive change within their own communities. 

Thank you again for your support in any way shape or form! Please feel free to follow along with my journey and reach out with any questions.


Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!

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:

  • Airfare
  • Visa's
  • Vaccinations
  • 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.

Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions a world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities. PWB is registered as a charity in the United States with 501(c)(3) status and is registered as a not-for-profit organization in Canada. All donations are calculated in US Dollars and are tax-deductible for Americans and Canadians with US income.

PWB is not responsible for any donations made outside of these pages.
