Changing worlds with storytelling
MAKING CHANGE IN INDIA THROUGH EDUCATION
I am honored to be partnered with a non-profit through Photographers Without Borders again! This project will take me to Bangalore and Chennai, India to share the story of a wonderful NGO, AVASAR, dedicated to girls' education and digital literacy.
"Educated girls are healthier citizens who raise healthier families. Educated girls are less likely to marry young or contract HIV — and more likely to have healthy, educated children. Each additional year of school a girl completes cuts both infant mortality and child marriage rates." MalalaFund
Education is such an important issue and we are a global family. We all have an effect on each other. Educating a girl across the world could change your life or the world. She could cure cancer or teach the next generation about ways to save our planet.
Please consider making a donation to this project. All details are laid out below but please email me at email@example.com with any questions you might have. I would be so grateful for your financial support but even more so to have your encouragement during this journey. Please follow along on my journey through Facebook and/or Instagram. Thank you!
Every year, our Associates (photographers and videographers) donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of our Community Partners (grassroots NGOs, charities and community initiatives) that are making real change in this world where it is most needed. By honoring and witnessing humanity at its best, we hope to inspire and forge new narratives of what is possible.
You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers

We are a community of storytellers uniting to support our community partners on volunteer assignments through the PWB Program, and inspire new generations of storytellers through PWB School and our other initiatives and resources. Our mission is to make storytelling more accessible for communities around the world who are contributing to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goalsand UNDRIP.
