Changing worlds with photography.
GLONA - Ghana - Susanna Avery Lynch
My heart and spirit have always chased the need to help others who have so little. I even carry some guilt, wondering why I have so much (I’m not even close to rich according to American standards, but I’m filthy rich according to my friends in Kenya) and others live without food, shelter and warm clothing. If my photography talent can do more to help others like them, I’d be beyond ecstatic.
That's where GLONA comes in.
GLONA is a wonderful grassroots organization that started with one woman and one child near Accra, Ghana in 1997. Now, GLONA provides free education to many children who otherwise couldn't attend, due to financial challenges among their families or adopted parent.
Thanks to Photographers Without Borders, GLONA and I will work together to get the word out about the amazing things happening in Ghana.
One person can make a difference, but it takes a village to support that one person.
You have no idea how grateful I am for your support. THANK YOU.
About Photographers Without Borders:
Changing worlds with photography.
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:
- Health Insurance
- Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel
- 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 !
