Photographers Without Borders (PWB) is the leading community of storytellers building capacity for grassroots initiative worldwide. OIC is very lucky as one of the NGOs that have been supported by PWB for almost 2 years. PWB is not only supporting OIC programme by providing the amazing pictures to be used as OIC’s campaign but also by initiating the Sumatera photography workshop with the photographer participants worldwide. This November is the second time of Sumatran class photography workshop of 2017.
Danielle Khan Da Silva, the Founder and CEO of PWB , stated that “I am really passionate about the grassroots NGO worldwide. Mostly they can’t develop their work and campaign since they don’t have the access to the photos that can tell the story about what’s happening. By having this kind of workshop, I can bring photographers worldwide to explore photography and teach them to be better storytellers as well as helping the grassroots NGOs of developing the better campaign”.
On the occasion, Danielle and one photographer from Boston named Mattie Simas, are kindly sparing their time to teach the OIC staff for the photography basic skill training to improve their capacity building to take better images and pictures to complete the report for each programme. Patiently, they train the OIC staff and share the knowledge the staff never have before.
“This workshop is not only useful but also such an inspiring workshop. By following this workshop, I realize that even I can do my own campaign by using my personal account to help with OIC programme and campaign effort” Alphin, one of OIC coordinator programme, said.
Everybody from many different places shares their contributions to support OIC’s work. That what makes us even more passionate to work harder for the better future of Sumatran Orangutan and their forest homes. Keep supporting us, folks!
