Changing worlds with photography.

Hello Everyone,

I have the honor and privilege to serve as a volunteer photographer/videographer for Photographers Without Borders. I will be working with an NGO, its mission is to grow resilient communities through the focus on holistic, and interlinked projects that provide long-term sustainable grassroot solutions to the dual problems of poverty and poaching. They believe that through Tourism, Education, Conservation, Sustainable Farming and Economic Empowerment they can make a real difference in the lives of their community. 

The Project will take place in rural South Africa, five hours from Johannesburg. The volunteer remains in one main area but will visit up to 15 project sites that include schools, community hubs, social enterprise sites, and field visits. The material will be used to promote and create awareness of this NGO’s education, conservation and economic empowerment efforts in this community.

I will get the opportunity to work with the most vulnerable in this rural South African community, this NGO runs multiple programs to support its goals of fighting poaching through fighting poverty, encouraging young people to become wildlife guardians, and helping them to develop the necessary skills to enable sustainable livelihoods resulting in more resilient communities. They work at the grassroots level primarily at schools, community hubs and through field visits.

I have been into helping others for the majority of my life and it's something that I am extremely proud of. My love for service, storytelling, teaching, and photography allow me to keep helping and making a difference. There are matters going on all over the world, and we should always work as a worldly community to tell those stories and solve them. 

Please help send me to do one of the most important assignments of my career. It is only possible with your help, I cannot do it alone. 

Warmth & Love,

Damari McBride

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.

Any overage amounts raised on GroupRev will be donated with the photographers direction, 100% to the Organization, 100% to PWB or split 50/50, between the photographer's/videographer's assigned cause and PWB, which is also a volunteer-run organization.

Good morning to you all. 

I simply want to say thank you for helping reach my first goal. This past Thanksgiving I got to spend it with friends and family, and I even had some time alone to reflect on how grateful and thankful I am for not only this opportunity but for the people around the world who made it possible. Investing in my career has made me realize that people truly believe in my work and my projects. Thank you. You have no idea how much this means to me. 

With that being said, life has been extremely busy and it's catch up time. I will be sending each of you a handwritten postcard, I will be emailing you individually to get your address. 

Stay tuned, there is still more things going on.

Hey Everyone!

I took a little break from posting about the project to rest. Fundraising is a full time job, but it's worth it. I hope everyone has enjoyed their extra hour of sleep, I know I have. Fundraising for me starts again today, and I will be going full force until it's time for me to leave for the trip. 

I just want to send out another massive THANK YOU! (You will hear me say this a lot!) to everyone. You all made it possible for me to meet my first goal. I now start my much needed stretch goals. Everyone should be receiving an email asking for your address so that I can send you a "Thank You" Postcard, stay on the look out for that. 

Everyone enjoy your week, and if you can, please continue to share the project!

11 hours and 40 minutes left to donate to the first goal. Any amount will help. Lets share and donate up until the day is done.

We did it everyone! Made it to my first goal! I can't thank you enough. 

October 20, 2017 7:13 AM

I can't even tell you how thankful I am. Each day this gets closer to the first goal. You guys rock! I can't wait to return the favor and the love that you have all showed me. Thank you for supporting me and this project.

Hello Everyone!

We are moving right along, and with your help I am really reaching my goal and extremely grateful for everyone who continues to help. While I have quite a way to go for the final goal of $4000, I am very close to accomplishing the first milestone, which is the program fee of $1780. This is extremely important, it solidifies me actually going and I am almost there. Please keep sharing this. Sharing is just as much of a help as donating.  

I will be emailing everyone who has donated for their address so that I can mail you a postcard. 

Peace and Love

I thank you all for helping me out and making me get that much closer to my goal. While it seems like I am way off from my goal, I am really on track. While my goal may be $4000, I am in need of $1780 to meet my fee within 29 days. I am currently offering $100 portrait sessions and 5 people have signed up for that, pushing my real total up $750. I am also working on big things, and will be sharing them with you as they happen. 

Peace and Love
