One of the biggest challenges facing any non-rofit volunteer NGO like ours is fundraising. An NGO like EwB does not have the resources to engage professional fundraisers – anyway this is not our focus, nor our mission.

This photobook would contain poems, short essays, and amazing photographs taken by kids enrolled in our programs. Another idea I’ve been chewing on while I’ve been living here in Israel is to make this book more multimedia and interactive. How about including links to videos, music, and visual art?
