About Us


celebrating 10 years

 
 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make storytelling more accessible for communities around the world who are contributing to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and UNDRIP. We are a community of storytellers (photographers and filmmakers) uniting to support our community partners on volunteer assignments through the PWB Program and inspire new generations of storytellers through PWB School and our other initiatives and resources.

OUR Values

We are committed to:

  • Ethics: See our code of ethics.

  • Impact: Striving to achieve tangible change based on community wants and needs.

  • Diversity: Respecting and celebrating what makes us all unique.

  • Accessibility: Making our programs and initiatives accessible to communities in need and to our storytellers through our own fundraising platform.

  • Anti-Oppression/Decolonization: implementing practices that acknowledge repression/colonization in societies, economies, cultures and groups and seeking to remove or negate the influence of such repression.

OUR IMPACT

Since 2013, PWB has connected over 100 volunteer storytellers from all over the world to document over 125 assignments addressing all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals / UNDRIP in 54 countries. We publish several films and campaigns every year, which reach hundreds of thousands of people all over the world and have accrued over 1 million views on our video channels. We have helped conserve 10 hectares of rainforest in Sumatra, supported reforestation efforts by planting hundreds of trees, sent girls to school in India, helped human trafficking survivors in Kenya, and assisted marine protection in Mozambique. Every year we sponsor an Indigenous storyteller to exhibit their work at CONTACT, North America’s largest photography festival. Our newly-launched PWB Camera Club aims to leave a camera with the communities we work in. 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. For more details about our impact, please read our Annual Reports below.
