VideoVolunteers (VV) is a media and human rights NGO that grows and changes with the media and social change space in India. Their teams equip women and men in underdeveloped areas with video journalism skills, enabling them to expose underreported stories from their communities and take action to right the wrongs of poverty, injustice and inequality. We are excited that a staff member, Anand Pagareand a community correspondent, Sarita Biswalfrom this pioneering organisation will join us during our final field trip to share their learning about what steps to take after a video is finished to achieve concrete impacts. Click here to watch a video made by Anand and click here to watch a video made by Sarita.


In January 2014, 12 youth campaigners of Oxfam GB's 'My Rights, My Voice' programme in Nepal participated in PV workshop facilitated by InsightShare and produce three powerful films on community health care issues. During this web gathering the youth and a programme staff member of Oxfam Nepal will tell their story of how, over the past year, they screened their films to community members and decision- makers at local and district levels and talk about how this dissemination process contributed to important results such as securing funding for solar panels for local health posts.
