These have been compiled with the help of many fabulous people: photojournalists, international development workers, caring and observant travellers, and thousands of Verge readers, who have contributed their images and stories.
Sit down, grab a cup of your favourite brew, kick back and browse through the galleries. If you are inspired, please share with your friends—or contribute your own images and stories in our next photo contest.
P.S. If you happen to be organizing an event and are in need of a little visual flair, many of these exhibits are available for loan. Please contact us for details.
