Virtual Photo Walks is creating Walk the Walk for Those Who Can't

Have you ever imagined traveling the world only to be held back by a physical limitation?

Virtual Photo Walks (VPW) enables people isolated by illness or disability to "travel" the world in real time by connecting them with photographers in the field.  Our technology partners and an international group of volunteer guides allow us to make the world bigger for those who are confined by "transporting" them everywhere from world-class museums and lush forests to quaint European streets and wild African safaris.

Using smartphones and the internet, we take our community outside of their four walls and provide a platform for conversation amongst guides and participants. 

Our goal is to produce three new tours hosted in different locations each week. Having the finances to equip dedicated volunteer guides with necessary gear would enable VPW to expand into even more countries and offer a richer variety of experiences to our participants.

Making a Difference
Words can't really capture the impact your donation will have on those who participate in our program, so we've created a video for you to see for yourself what a life-changing opportunity this is:  https://youtu.be/UrR0DYiMxSc
