We imagine a world where NGOs succeed in their missions.
We connect volunteer photographers and videographers (storytellers) to our many grassroots causes, NGOs and nonprofit partners through the PWB Program. We carefully select our storyteller and NGO partners based on criteria largely focusing on need, relationship with the community, and impact in fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
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.
Through storytelling and the cross-pollination of stories we are witnessing new realms of possibility every day. 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 accrued over 1 million views on our video channels. In addition, our newly-launched PWB Camera Program aims to provide a camera to our NGO and nonprofit 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 what we do in action or visit our Media Centre for press releases and publications.
