HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?

We are all human and together we can inspire humanity to respect one another. But in order to change the world, we will need your help! With your support, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation facilitates projects to raise awareness and share knowledge of indigenous cultures through education and art. The reciprocity projects will focus on working together with the communities to support their cultural heritage.

 

To contribute you can become a friend of the Jimmy Nelson Foundation or donate directly to one of our projects (coming soon).

Feel like taking action? The Jimmy Nelson Foundation aims to document and to research further how to create the reciprocity projects with and for the communities. In order to do so, we need people on the ground! Our goal is to organize a number of journeys a year which will take place during a cultural festival and/or gathering. During the trip you will form a team with a group of volunteers and together with the community, you will document the event from your and their perspective. Next to documenting you will be doing research on how and where we can support the community. Your research will help us to set up reciprocity projects!
