Do you believe you have the power to inform and transform society?
Video Volunteers wants you to join the change revolution. We want you to be our Social Media Ambassador For Change.
Video Volunteers is an international NGO that works with marginalized communities by training community video correspondents to expose unreported stories from their communities. We publish these stories on various platforms to ensure that the voices from these communities reach out and speak to the world. The correspondents empower themselves and their communities to take action to right the wrongs of injustice, inequality and poverty.
We want thousands of people to start watching the unreported stories of the world, told by “those who live it”.
We want to amplify the voices of these offline communities by being their bridge to the world.
We want to create a platform where the online world can actively participate to bring social change on the ground.

- Commit to sharing VV’s material with your network at least 3X a week or as often as you like.
