Our Stories Power Change collection

Dear supporter of smart storytelling for impact,

2020 is off to a strong start and we have exciting projects underway here at p.h. balanced films!

We'll provide a behind-the-scenes look in our next update (but if that feels too far away, take a peek now on any of our social media platforms - Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram).

In this update, we're delighted to share a series of short videos from our recent work in Nairobi.

The Stories Power Change collection features conversations with fellow African Women in Media attendees about the importance of storytelling. From a radio show or a full-length documentary film, to journalism and multimedia engagement, each has made an important impact with stories in their respective countries and communities.

Take a few moments to watch today. We'd love to know which one you find most inspiring!

With gratitude for your support and excitement about the year ahead,

Piper

FINAL PROJECT REPORT - Thank you!

Dear generous supporter of our "Train 20 Women to Use Film for Social Justice" project,

This is the final report you'll receive about this project - and here's why:

Your contribution made it possible for us to further our mission of equipping women to use storytelling to address injustice and promote positive change.

With your support, this project funded the launch of Reel Women Real Change program in Nepal. After that workshop, we paired graduates with expert mentors to support their filmmaking and advocacy work and were delighted to see our graduates grow - both personally and professionally - in the year that followed.

In 2019, we provided several shorter workshops to a range of audiences - from Pennsylvania to Kenya!

In 2020, we continue to welcome invitations for future workshops - both in the U.S. and abroad - as we also undertake a new initiative here in Washington, DC that we plan to launch by fall.

We are closing this project because we exceeded our goal and this particular project has served its purpose.

Our work is possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.

We will continue to send reports about our work through the GlobalGiving platform to those who donated to "Reel Women Real Change: Stories, Advocacy, Impact" (Project #31285).

Unfortunately, we cannot combine our project lists, so if you don't receive those updates, be sure you are receiving our e-newsletter by signing up here:

Or, if you prefer to receive updates via GlobalGiving, a small donation to the RWRC project will add you to that list instead.

Thank you again for supporting women's voices. We've made it as far as we have today because of YOU.

With gratitude,
Piper Hendricks
Founder & Executive Director of p.h. balanced films

Stories Power Change: A talk with Aderonke Adeola

Dear supporter of women changemakers,

At p.h. balanced films, we know the power of storytelling to change hearts and minds - and, in turn, policies and practices. That knowledge drives everything we do, from our Reel Women Real Change workshops to other events and engagements about stories, film, and media in general.

With your support, we were able to be part of the African Women in Media conference and festival earlier this year. As we shared in our last update, the gathering brought women from around the world to Nairobi, Kenya, where we were honored to host several workshops and panels.

I'm now delighted to share with you one of the one-on-one conversations we had with fellow changemakers at the conference. 

Take a moment to watch our conversation with Aderonke Adeola, the talent and energy behind the film, AWANI.

We look forward to sharing more conversations - and some exciting plans we have in store for 2020 - in the months ahead.

With gratitude, 

Piper Hendricks and the team at p.h. balanced films
