Description

Video Volunteers is a movement of people who believe in the power of media to bring the world closer together and cause people to take action. Working with the Creative Visions Foundation and Drishti Media Collective, Video Volunteers uses the now ubiquitous video camera to accelerate social change at the most basic level: To fix wells, educate children, and fight for social justice and womenà ¢??s rights. Video Volunteers matches filmmakers with non-governmental organizations around the world for two- to four-month stays. These à ¢??Video Volunteers,à ¢?? equipped with cameras, tapes and computer software, produce films for the NGOà ¢??s advocacy, fundraising, training and community awareness efforts. The Video Volunteers also train staff in video production. This enables the NGO to continue to produce basic videos that make their organizations more successful.
