Changing worlds with photography.

Mel Hattie - 1948 Bosnia Herzegovina


- Fundraising Dollars are in USD -

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 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.


Project 1948 - Cup of Peace

Project 1948 works with Bosnian youth who grew up in the aftermath of the Bosnian War. Using therapeutic arts in their Cup of Peace project they work towards ethnic reconciliation and understanding. 

This year we will also be going into unmarked Syrian refugee camps in Bosnia, Greece, Albania and Montenegro to help deliver basic humanitarian aid, such as providing hygiene products for people living in the camps.

Hi Mel, My friend Terri Whetstone shared your project. It resonated with me due to the fact that I worked with Bosnian children traumatized by war in Switzerland in 2000. The children (and their mothers) came to Switzerland during the war to live with their fathers that had worked as foreign workers there for many years. Only after the war was over the schools realized that there were many
