We envision ourselves as a community of storytellers empowering everyday heroes and "do-good" grassroots initiatives worldwide. See through a new lens™!
At PWB we believe grassroots initiatives deserve more attention as they tend to demonstrate the highest success rates in creating social change due to their organic, local and community-oriented nature. We strive to operate with an anti-oppresive, intersectional framework that values ethics and amplifies locally and community-produced, grassroots narratives.
Our mission is to empower grassroots NGOs/causes/initiatives/everyday heroes by connecting volunteer photographers and videographers to NGOs/initiatives in need with our flagship PWB Program. We carefully select more than 60 big-impact, grassroots organizations/causes per year that are addressing the interconnected problems we face on this planet as outlined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our hope is that by amplifying grassroots voices and narratives by storytelling through photography, video and social media, we offer a new way to look at the world: through the lens of possibility. 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 sponsors & supporters for helping us make more of an impact each year.
