How Photographers Without Borders Is Empowering People Worldwide

Photographers Without Borders is a Toronto-based and volunteer-run non-profit. These photographers act as storytellers to empower grassroots organizations all across the globe.

Here’s how Photographers Without Borders is empowering people worldwide.

1. They carefully select 40 grassroots organizations and causes to feature every year.

Since its formation almost ten years ago, PWB has chosen 40 grassroots organizations and causes that are changing the world every single year. They work hard to carefully select organizations that are addressing the interconnected myriad problems faced on this planet as outlined by the UN Millennium Development Goals.

Le Sende Verde Wildlife Refuge was one of the world-changing organizations highlighted in 2016.

2. They use photography, video, and social media to bring attention to causes that are otherwise overlooked.

PWB works exclusively with grassroots organizations and causes because they believe that these initiatives demonstrate the highest success rates when it comes to creating social change. This is because of the organic, local, and community-oriented nature of these organizations.

Videos like this one are helping viewers view their world through the lens of possibility.

3. Their images have been featured in National Geographic.

At more than 500 photographers strong, PWB has become strongly influential in the photography field. Their images have been featured in acclaimed publications such as United Nations Handbooks and National Geographic.

PWB runs its own publication as well.
