4 the World is a U.S. based non-profit organization providing educational; healthcare; and community infrastructure support to under-developed communities throughout the world. Their work is directed towards collaborative community vision; empowerment; and training of new skills. 4 the World is a compassionate, diligent and dedicated organization. Sustainability is a cornerstone of their work.
“In 2004, 4 the World was created and volunteers started helping poor rural communities in Belize, Guatemala and Nicaragua by improving the schools and helping to bring healthcare to the people in need. Sherry oversaw the arrangements and procurement of product for an international container shipment of educational supplies that were used to supply 7 impoverished schools in Belize.
Additionally, Sherry has travelled with 4 the World to Guatemala to consult with government officials re future development programs and to document local conditions and areas of need.
Sherry's photography captures the true essence of the daily hardships faced by the people in the communities we serve as well as their happiness, joy and celebration of life.
Sherry further arranged for photography equipment to be made available to James Mangok Wol one of the Lost Boys of Sudan to document the plight of impoverished children in Sudan.
Sherry’s approach to photography provided our organization a fresh new look. A uniqueness of dignity, compassion and insightfulness underscored the creativity of her work. These amazing photographs and the stories they tell are being used in our engagements with volunteers, donors and partners and in marketing campaigns and web site development. They show the reality and beauty of those we serve in Belize and Guatemala. The photos are being used to inspire others to help us help others through our work. Our work would not be possible without this support and level of professionalism.”
