WINGS Foundation is a non-profit based in Sweden that aims to make a long-term difference on a global scale. Our response is to create a ripple effect of inspiration beyond ourselves.
We have just finished our first major project: Children of the World.
250.000~ SEK total donations to charitable causes for children.
500.000+ SEK additional value - thousands of high quality images donated from over 50 different projects worldwide.
We use a camera as our main tool for storytelling and our stories are being brought back home for interpretation by students and companies to motivate them to create a change of their own.
For our partners, we share their efforts through our programs/activities/social media channels and update them regularly about our progress.
We are proud recipients of the Kilroy Foundation €1.500 grant for our project: Children of the World.
We realised quickly that our actions at WINGS might and could cause harm. Every action has consequences, often ones we don't intend.
To avoid causing unnecessary harm to the environment, everything we do goes through the process of asking the right questions. It isn't easy, and it comes at a price. Today, a lot of emphasis is put on the environmental struggle of global warming. While this is undeniably happening, our mission is to help on all aspects of sustainability: economy, social responsibility and the environment. We want everyone to know that we will be transparent in our actions and do as much as possible to develop our sustainable practices.
As an example, going to 15 countries in a year does some heavy damage to the environment. We travelled by public transport for a total of 160 hours while taking the plane for 117. We aim to be even better in the future and reduce our imprint.
When it comes to choosing projects or working with partners, we have a no tolerance policy to all forms of discriminations. We say no to a cooperation if our values are not aligned and we dedicate ourselves fully to the ones that we join forces with. To recognize the individuals that we work with and has proven to be truly exceptional, we have an award program called WINGS Heroes which you can read more about here.
WINGS do not have a religious or political agenda but a humanitarian vision to change the world to the better. We believe strongly in diversity and how each piece of the puzzle matters.
