PWB SCHOOL UGANDA


SCROLL DOWN

PWB SCHOOL UGANDA


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


Let us take you on an emotional journey as we work hand in hand with Children of Hope Uganda, a local NGO that is working to empower the children and people of Northern Uganda who have endured very difficult circumstances. From this experience you will not only be encouraged to step into new ideas and inspirations that will leave you forever changed. Proceeds go to supporting education and skill-building programming for children and youth to break the cycle of violence.

Every photographer needs to take a PWB Workshop. I’ve been changed in ways I never imagined I could be and feel more inspired than ever to be the change I wish to see.
— Nicole, PWB School Alumni

Participants will come away with beautiful additions to their portfolios, a PWB certificate and a chance to be featured in the PWB Magazine and/or the PWB News.
