If you haven’t heard about WSP, check them out today. This open collective is all about giving back to the worldwide community by using their talents to raise profits for charities. Here’s just one example of what this talented and generous group of people is doing:
The Ubuntu Project
Ubuntu means “people are people through other people.” This concept is a perfect fit for the Kujaja photography team and their contributing photographers who undertook a special project. Generously donated funds made possible the successful upgrade of the Vuka Ntomboyi Culture Home’s shelter for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Langa, Cape Town. Half of the funds went towards the completion of this construction project and the other half are going towards the production of a book created by the aforementioned team of talented photographers. It is titled, “One Minute on Earth 2014.” The proceeds of the book will go towards further investment in the children.
The Ubuntu project is one of many that are underway right now. Here’s a snippet from the World Street Photography website, which is achieving great things thanks to their kindness and dedication to helping others:
“World Street Photography is an independent organization, we promote and encourage street photographers from all around the world. Here you can join the world street photography awards, get published and exhibited. Every body can join us, this is not a closed collective or about a single street photographer. Our profits we donate to charity organisations.”
