We read that the world of effective presentations and messaging is becoming much broader than simply transmitting information or creating identity. That’s because the way we communicate is changing. One major shift is the prevalence of videos. In the next minute, about 35 hours of footage will be uploaded to YouTube. Worldwide, over 400 billion multimedia text messages were sent in 2018 alone. And chances are you’ve received at least one video from a friend or coworker this week. We’ve recognized this fact at YesLiberia and would really need someone to help get our messages across through videos. I am a volunteer staff member of a small organization called YesLiberia--- a strategic nonprofit organization striving to make major impact against some of the dire conditions for the people we serve in Africa.
We have a have a GOAL and a story to tell; we have few footages (good and bad clips due camera used or poor recording conditions) that can be combined to achieve the messages we will to relay through videos. However, we lack the ability, resources, and effective skills to tell and sell our stories through videos. This is where you come in-- to take on this important, yet fun, task for us.
The Opportunity: We are seeking a gifted individual with, unmatched talent, to take our short clips (or recreate our stories) and produce creative, inspiring, and powerful short videos that will not only tell our story, but encourage viewers to support our CAUSE. If that is you, we encourage you to apply.
Our mission is to empower young people through meaningful service learning opportunities in education, healthcare, and technology. We do this through strategic partnerships and learning models to utilize existing youth habits and uphold societal values in the communities we work.
Conviction created YesLiberia. Daily the needs of underprivileged are ignored. We ignore their struggles because it’s easier to deal with the more important things in our lives-- like climbing the corporate ladder and saving money so we don’t become indigent. And some of us ignore their challenges because they bring back unpleasant memories we seek to repress. But disregarding the plight of the underprivileged yields no resolution. Then certain things happen to remind us their struggles exist no matter how hard we try to pretend our needs surpass theirs.
Jallah was convicted by several of those things over a short period of time. The prostitution of children in Thailand reminded him of Liberia. The rape and war in Congo reminded him of Liberia. The genocide in Rwanda reminded him of Liberia. He remembered his underprivileged past--a past where he was seen as less than elite based on his tribal and economic status and where his education came as a gift from the United Methodist Church.
Reminded, he became convicted to act and YesLiberia was founded to educate and help underprivileged Liberians whose plight he intimately understood.
YesLiberia is a 501c3 charity organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service since July 2009. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. YesLiberia is also registered at four government agencies in Liberia.
