PWB SCHOOL INDIA


SCROLL DOWN

PWB SCHOOL INDIA


PWB School India is intended to allow photographers a chance to not only learn from a master photographer and explore the world, but to also give back by working directly with our NGO partners.

This is a workshop for students interested in working with a women's empowerment organization in Jodhpur, India, where we will be partnering with Sambhali Trust to make this dream trip come to life. Sambhali Trust is an organization dedicated to promoting unity, independent and self-esteem among Indian women, diminishing notions of class and caste, and eradicating violence against women. Proceeds go directly to the purchasing of sewing machines for a group of women!
