Changing worlds with photography.
Alma de Colores, Guatemala - Colin Field
My name is Colin Field and I am a photographer and writer specializing in outdoor adventure. I've done some amazing things for my work, but it's time I gave back. I'm working with Photographers Without Borders to do just that; use my skills to help others. I'll be heading to Guatemala in November to work with the people at the NGO Alma de Colores (Soul of Colours), but I need YOUR help to make it happen. My images will help the organization tell their story, receive more funding, and in turn, help more people. Win, win, win.
Alma de Coloresis a labor and social inclusion program for people with disabilities in the Lake Atitlan region, Guatemala. Located in San Juan la Laguna, the workshop has over 24 participants between 16 and 44 years old who work in five main areas: handicraft production, sewing, baking, organic gardening as well as cooking and running a small restaurant, Café Correcto.
Every year, photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to Photographers Without Borders documenting the work of grassroots initiatives that are making real change in this world. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, PWB creates new narratives of what is possible.
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:
- Health Insurance
- Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel
- Equipment & Equipment Insurance
- Extra Baggage Fees
- Donation perks
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.
PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY !
