Creating with Purpose Around the World

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks for your generosity in supporting young change makers around the world to creatively express themselves using digital media. Here is an update of what our inspiring youth projects are working on:

Addressing Domestic Violence Across the Globe

Young people from Bonaire, Uruguay, Egypt and Kenya have teamed up to create a collaborative mini-documentary to raise awareness of the detrimental effects of domestic violence in all parts of the world. 

Creating with Purpose

Guatemalan youth are promoting civic engagement and peaceful communities through the use if ICTs.

E-Seeds Digital Empowerment 4 young women artisans

Young indigenous women artisans from rural areas in Mexico and Guatemala are gaining art & technology skills to increase their employ ability and break the cycle of poverty.

As the holiday season approaches, we hope you will extend your generosity to continue supporting our wonderful youth media projects. Remember, if you sign up for a recurring donation during December, GlobalGiving will match your first month’s donation, and we’ll be eligible for bonus funds! Please give generously this holiday season. 

With sincere thanks,
