Our goal is to make storytelling more accessible for non-profits and NGOs around the world. We dream of a world that is connected visually and through story so that new realities, solutions, and possibilities may be manifested.
We connect volunteer photographers and videographers (storytellers) to our many grassroots causes, NGOs and nonprofit partners through the PWB Program. We carefully select our partners based on criteria largely focusing on need, relationship with the community, and impact in fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through storytelling and the cross-pollination of stories we are witnessing new realms of possibility every day.
We believe grassroots efforts are of significant importance because they are created for the people by the people. Our hope is that by amplifying grassroots voices, building their capacity for communication, decolonizing the storytelling process, and fostering ethical relationships between storytellers and stories, we can make a powerful difference.
Since 2013, PWB has worked with over 175 storytellers documenting over 175 NGOs and non-profits addressing all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in over 35 countries. We reach hundreds of thousands of people all over the world and have amassed over 1 million views on our video channels. In addition, our newly-launched PWB Scholars program aims to provide a camera and training in storytelling to a local "Scholar" who is selected by each of our NGO and non-profit partners. For more details about our impact, please read our Annual Reports below. Check out our Online Magazine, our Print Magazine, our PWB Film Series to see it all.
