Changing worlds with photography.

Salud Y Paz, Guatemala - Photographer Francisco Alcala Torreslanda

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

My personal mission in this stage of my life is to use photography as a tool to document and promote individual and community efforts that are working to improve the society. The work that the organization Salud y Paz is doing in Guatemala is a perfect match. Your contribution will support me to amplify through photography their efforts to improve the communities where they operate.

The mission statement of Project Salud y Paz is to provide a ministry of health services, health promotion and education to the people of Guatemala leading into a self-sustaining partnership.

The project was founded by Phil Plunk in 2001 with a small clinic in Camanchaj, Quiche. Since then, the clinic has grown from one American dentist seeing less than 10 patients a day to one full-time Guatemalan doctor, two part-time doctors, a dentist, and a dental assistant seeing more than 50 patients a day. In addition, Project Salud y Paz operates a second clinic in Quetzaltenango (Xela-Urbina) and began partial operation at a third clinic in Cunén in early 2014.

Salud y Paz doesn’t just provide medical care. In 2009, Salud y Paz opened an early education center called Susanna Wesley School. Susanna Wesley School provides education, nutrition, and medical care for more than 50 children preschool through first grade.

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.
