Yes, another good one ! With my part time work at a foundation working in international development cooperation, I can only agree of course with such grants and the photos that raise awareness for world issues as poverty, crisis, injustice and the non profits that help people. (Could our organisation initiate a grant project with a Southern photographer?).
