Changing worlds with photography.
In 2017 I went to the PWB school in India. We stayed at Sambhali Trust, a non-profit charitable organisation based in Jodhpur, whose focus is the development and empowerment of women and girls in Rajasthan. I am so proud and impressed about the kindness of those girls and women. They were absolutely hospitable, cheerful and helping each other so much. They touched my heart. They needed help to stand out on a very patriarchal society were women are not as important as men. I was amazing all we could do. They opened their hearts to us and we could work a lot together.
With the photos I took there, I found some donors who sponsored the school for 6 kids for 5 years. And I learned a lot to bring this knowledge to my country and to more places where it is needed.
This project in Armenia means a lot to me, because working with women and girls is always a lot of learning, growing, and also a lot of laughing.
I am a documentary photographer and most of my work is based on approaching and trying to help people by understanding and relate to them in some way. Through photography, I found a way to express my place in this chaotic world and to show what my heart sees, but also to loud the voice and the needs of the people who, by their vulnerable momentary situations, can´t talk by themselves.
By helping my project you can help these people to find a place in their society. In appreciation of your help I offer:
- 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
- Contributions of $250 or more will receive a 18x12" poster print of your choice
You can follow all my trip and my day a day work on my ig stories (@maripomartini) and on all my posts. Also you can check on my website www.maripomartini.net all my previous work.

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.
