Can a picture change people's lives? I sincerely believe that compelling photojournalistic images bring attention and support to global causes. If in doubt, research what resulted from the tragic photo of Aylan Kurdi in 2017, and what it did to bring global attention to the Syrian refugee crisis. Photos matter, and can truly improve people's lives.
This is also the case for Photography supporting hard working NGO's. This NGO in Cambodia works with children to get them off the street, and into proper living arrangements with food, clothing, education and health care. They have literally benefited hundreds of lives in Cambodia, and they need help to get their story out to increase awareness and funding so that they can help out even more people. The downstream effects of their efforts are astounding, and I'm so humbled to be able to work with them for 14 days in May.
If you are considering donating to this cause or any of the other Photographers Without Borders volunteers, I can only thank you for sharing in a part of this story. All of the photographers and videographers here donate their time off work and their dollars on vaccinations, travel, insurance (its stated that risk of mugging is serious enough to get equipment and health insurance covered) and much more. Your support is appreciated, not only by the photographer themselves, but also the NGO who benefits from their volunteer work.
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.

- Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.
