Changing worlds with storytelling
I'm Valérie Leduc, photographer. This fall, in association with Photographers without borders, I'll be heading to Guatemala to help with my images an NGO that works with women with different disabilities. Their goals are to create a space for alliances and mutual support between women with disabilities and allies, raise awareness and respond to the violence and injustice faced by women with disabilities and increase participation of women with disabilities in organizational spaces and decision-making spaces.
Telling their stories could be very strong, as they are often invisible. You know all helping other women to shine, be confident and feel they have the freedom of being themselves is important for me. Here we're talking about women with disabilities who needs help to fight for their rights. I'll be there for them.
What I'm asking from you is to help me to help them.
Thank you in advance for your generosity,
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise project-related costs since 2014!
Every year, our Associates (photographers and videographers) donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of our Community Partners (grassroots NGOs, charities and community initiatives) that are making real change in this world where it is most needed. By honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we hope to inspire and forge new narratives of 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 Associates).
Each of our Associates is given a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon being selected for an Assignment. We offer this platform to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer Associates to subsidize these necessary assignment-related expenses:
- Assignment Cost
- Emergency Medical & Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the Associate:
- Privately-arranged travel / Equipment & equipment insurance / Software / Extra baggage fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage / Postcard / Prints / Etc.
We are a community of storytellers uniting to support our community partners on volunteer assignments through the PWB Program, and inspire new generations of storytellers through PWB School and our other initiatives and resources. Our mission is to make storytelling more accessible for communities around the world who are contributing to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goalsand UNDRIP.
