Umung is a collective of self-help groups and producer-shareholders in the Himalayas promoting sustainable livelihoods, fair trade products and gender equity. The women of the self-help groups harvest and produce gourmet, fair trade food products such as honey, spices, and pickles. All proceeds go straight back to the share-holders and their community development and environmental sustainability projects.

For 2019, PWB is hosting three unique School experiences, offering top-of-the-line photography lessons, intimate travel activities and hands on experience working with our partner NGOs. Participants will have the opportunity to snorkel with humpback whales in Mozambique, experience the sites, sounds and culture of the Holi festival in India, or travel through the beautiful mountains and lush valleys of Guatemala.

Our School programs are the perfect gift for someone looking to develop their photography skills, while giving back to our partner NGOs working toward conservation, economic development, and community empowerment. Click here for more information on each unique experience.
