Campaign Title

This page was created in support of Photographers Without Borders® (PWB)


Over three years ago, I decided to leave my job in the medical research field to pursue a career in photography. Although I no longer work in the medical field by day, health and hygiene issues in underserved areas, are still of great importance to me. I am dedicated to working on this project, as it will help bring something so essential to the health and hygiene to those living in rural areas of Cambodia: soap. 

By collecting used soap from hotels and guesthouses in Cambodia (that would otherwise be discarded as waste to landfills), Eco-Soap Bank collects, sanitizes and recycles this soap and distributes it to rural Cambodian communities in need of hygiene. The soap donations are paired with hand washing training so that the communities learn ways they can prevent illness. In addition to the benefits of increasing hygiene to these areas, Eco-Soap Bank also helps reduce waste and to provide livelihoods to Cambodian women with no other reliable source of income. 

In a culture where we are able to wash our hands countless times a day, we cannot forget that many people do not even have access to soap and proper hygiene. In photographing this project, I aim to provide my best work in advocating for and bringing awareness to this issue. Every little bit helps!  

Changing worlds with photography.

Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!

Eco Soap - Cambodia - Sharon Radisch - Photographer

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.
