Changing worlds with storytelling
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise project-related costs since 2014!
We have partnered with the Nature for Change and Nuraga Bhumi Insititute to make this project come to life. We will have the exclusive chance to see how palm oil impacts people on the local and global level, how reforestation and buffer zones are being accomplished, and how everyday heroes are rescuing critically-endangered orangutans in need.
Proceeds go directly to conservation of pristine rainforest in Sumatra, Indonesia, which is home to critically-endangered Sumatran orangutan, rhino, elephant and tiger.
We will document the dynamics of global consumption and wildlife conservation in the realm of social change and gain first hand experience in creating visual stories and narratives that are powerful, truthful and impactful.
The project will be lead by Danielle Khan Da Silva, an international award-winning photographer/filmmaker, Sony Alpha Female, and National Geographic speaker. She was named Top 30 Under 30 Sustainability Leaders, Top Photographer of 2017 and Top 5 Women Changing Media by Matador Network. She is the Founder of PWB and has been on the TEDx stage twice and has also been published in various places such as National Geographic, the Economist, the Independent, and Huffington Post.
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 honouring 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 (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent Associates).
Each of our Associates is given a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon being selected for an Assignment. We offer this platform to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer Associates to subsidize these necessary assignment-related expenses:
- Assignment Cost
- Emergency Medical & Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the Associate:
- Privately-arranged travel / Equipment & equipment insurance / Software / Extra baggage fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage / Postcard / Prints / Etc.
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. 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 and disbursed 50/50, between the Associate's assigned cause and PWB.
