ikusi: Storytelling on Latin American Non Profits



This project raises funds for the development of a new nonprofit organization called "ikusi." ikusi addresses the communication and visibility problems that non-profit organizations have in Uruguay (and, hereafter, in Latin America). WE SEE, WE TELL, WE CHANGE. Will you help us?

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are about 600 non-profit organizations in Uruguay, but most of them are unknown by the general public because they do not appear in the media, they are not online, and they do not advertise. . . they have no voice. All of them are working to address the needs and social issues of our society and they need help, volunteers, money, resources and recognition. But, to do this, they need to be visible in the first place.

How will this project solve this problem?

To address the issue, we are developing a non-profit organization, which we call "ikusi", which means "seeing" in the Euskera language of the Basque region of Spain. This non-profit will provide communication services to other non-profits to help share their message. The innovation is that ikusi uses journalism tools (such as video, storytelling, photography etc.) to tell nonfiction stories about the non-profits. lt is not "advertising;" it is telling true stories, of real people.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the funds generated through GlobalGiving, we expect to make "ikusi" happen, so that we have all the elements needed to start generating these stories of non-profit organizations in Uruguay (and in the near future, in other Latin American countries). We want to see what's happening, tell their stories and change their realities.
