Empowering Community Voices

Video Volunteers (VV) envisions a world in which all disadvantaged communities have their own locally relevant and locally produced media that celebrates their culture, voices grassroots concerns, and stimulates dialog to find solutions to endemic problems.

The mainstream media is powerful and is the lens through which we see the world. So therefore, if we want to change the way people think we must change the way the media operates. Community media can become a global movement today because of the cost of technology and the ease of distribution, which presents the possibility, for the first time in history, that the needs and knowledge of the poor can be heard on a massive scale.

An informed citizenry with access to a free and representative media is necessary to the proper functioning of a democracy. Developing community media is a vital way to highlight concerns of people in developing countries, allowing the poorest citizens to advocate on their own behalf.
