Changing worlds with photography.
Huellas que Trascienden, Mexico - Photographer Angela Winsor
"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."
For me, it begins and ends with people. People are what matter and their stories matter. So, you can imagine my joy and excitement at being given the opportunity to partner with Photographers Without Borders by using my particular skill set and passion to document, empower and give voice to an incredible organization! Huellas Que Trascienden is an organization whose work I firmly believe in. When an organization like them reaches out to Photographers Without Borders, it is because they have a specific media/photographic need and they want a professional's help with documenting and honoring their story. Your generosity will help me accomplish this! Would you consider joining me in helping to give voice to the important and hopeful stories of the indigenous women of Chiapas? I cannot wait to dive into the many inspiring stories of the women who are being impacted daily by the work of this organization (and to share them with all of you)!
About Huellas Que Trascienden:
Huellas que Trascienden combats poverty by turning, in an innovative and integral way, the talents that the indigenous women of Chiapas have into income for their households. Through the use of interest free loans to start a business, business workshops, project consulting, assistance in selling artisan products in a fair trade market, and the promotion of cultural exchange tourism to extend the cash flow into their communities, this organization is actively changing the lives of these women!
About Photographers Without Borders:
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.
