Video Volunteers is an international organization empowering the voices of the world's unheard communities. Its mission is to empower the world's poorest citizens to right the wrong they witness by becoming players in the global information revolution. Providing disadvantaged communities with story and data gathering skills they need, Video Volunteers' models of locally-owned and managed monitoring and advocacy units teach people to articulate and share their perspective on the issues that matter to them - on a local and a global scale.
