We are the leading community of storytellers building capacity for grassroots initiatives.
Our mission is to build capacity for grassroots nonprofits and initiatives by connecting volunteer photographers and videographers to grassroots initiatives and nonprofits. We carefully select 50 or more initiatives every year to become part of our flagship PWB Program. These nonprofits and initiatives must be grassroots; they must be in need; and they must be addressing the interconnected problems we face on this planet as outlined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through their stories, we urge the world to see through a new lens.
At PWB we believe grassroots initiatives deserve attention as they tend to demonstrate the highest success rates in creating social and/or environmental change. Our hope is that by amplifying grassroots voices and building their capacity for communication, we can also offer a better glimpse of the world and all the possibilities it offers for everyday agents of change. Check out our Online Magazine, our Print Magazine, and our PWB TV web series to see what we're up to!
We kindly thank our partners & supporters for helping us make more of an impact each year.
