We are the leading community of storytellers building capacity for non-profits and NGOs worldwide. We dream of a world that is connected visually and through story so that new realities, solutions, and possibilities may be manifested.
We are achieving our vision by connecting volunteer photographers and videographers (storytellers) to document grassroots initiatives, NGOs and nonprofits every year as part of the PWB Program. These nonprofits and initiatives must be grassroots; they must be in need; and they must be making a significant impact in addressing the interconnected problems we face on this planet as outlined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through stories and the cross-pollination of stories we are witnessing new realms of possibility every day.
At PWB we believe grassroots efforts are sustainable and impactful because they are created for the people by the people. Our hope is that by amplifying grassroots voices and building their capacity for communication, we can help to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals together. Check out our Online Magazine, our Print Magazine, our PWB TV web series, and our PWB Scholars program to see what we're up to!
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 amassed over 1 million views on our video channels. In addition, our newly-launched PWB Scholars program aims to provide a camera and training in storytelling to a local "Scholar" who is selected by each of our NGO and non-profit partners.
