My photos work for me because I’m not too good with words, so they’re the best I’ve got. But the best moments are often the ones you don’t have a camera for, and if they’re really so great, you’ll remember them without any photo.
Society tends to view the poor through two main lenses: (a) with a sense of derision, believing that no one or nothing else is responsible for their condition other than the poor themselves, and (b) with a sense of pity, coupled with a “savior” complex.

This March, we are excited to introduce everyone to the newest members of our ever-expanding network and share the updates of our older members.
The last Wednesday of every month is dedicated to showcasing the incredible work that these organizations do in the name of social impact! See what each organization is up to, and reach out to them to lend your support.
This is a hobby with a growing and diverse community that you can’t participate in alone. You need to get out there, talk with and meet new people. And as I mentioned above the community is diverse – what I like best about analog gaming is that you can’t predict beforehand who will enrich the game the most.

One of the reasons why ON BOARD exists is because we believe we are lacking more spaces for inspiration in our life. The journeys you go on with us can become that space where you can connect deeply with yourself, the community of travelers you will be learning and traveling with, and the country that you visit.
We visit, talk, observe and learn from local communities to eventually exchange our travelers’ talents with the needs of the local people — avoiding a paternalistic approach.
We discover the destinations we visit through the eyes of the locals.
