telling stories about international development

  • ngo storytelling


We are a resource for people telling stories about nonprofits in international development.
We believe that ethical photography, video, and multimedia stories help nonprofits show the impact of their projects, and increase funding and emotional connection to their work.
We also strongly believe in empowering beneficiaries worldwide to create a better life for themselves.
