Joshua Project is a non-profit Christian ministry focused on gathering and distributing information about the world's least-reached ethnic people groups.
All Joshua Project staff raise their own personal support or are self-funded volunteers. We are unable to offer compensation to any volunteers. Most of these opportunities can be done remotely. We welcome inquiries regarding staff and volunteer opportunities.

The Cultural Study Toolbox has been developed specifically as a guide for this kind of surveying. Helpful resources to get started:

Photo Researcher: Pictures of the people groups really help us connect with them in a special way. Help us in our ongoing search for people group photos.
You'll know we need a photo if you see the silhouette image on a people profile. Or view our country listings such as the one for Nepal and look through the list of people groups to find missing photos.
Photos ought to be:
Be Radical: Try to find a photo for all the people groups in one or two countries that are missing one. Or what about doing some traveling to take an original photo of a people group or two?
