Reviews for PCI Media Impact, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

We worked with PCI Media Impact on an entertainment education radio soap-opera for communities in India, with the objective of engaging these communities on campaigns for energy access and distributed solar power solutions. Media Impact delivered high quality work, that included on-site research, engagement with our partners, the production of 8x30' episodes and the placement of the program on the state radio, within a very short time frame and budget and with a high level of quality. Media Impact staff were not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also available, responsive, respectful and open for constructive engagement with the various partners involved in the work.
This work lead to another partnership - suggested by PCI ME - for the development of the climate change piece of the Comics Uniting Nations project, where again PCI Media Impact delivered high quality work that included a dynamic, multi-stakeholder narrative development process and around the clock consultations and feed-back management of multiple partners. As from before, its staff were very professional, respectful and proactive.

I've had the pleasure to work with Sean and the team for the past several years. I continue to be impressed with the scope and quality of the work that they do. They have true passion and commitment to create meaningful change around the world by helping people live better (e.g., healthier, empowered, safe, etc.) lives.

I have been in contact with PCI Media Impact for approximately two and a half years now. Seeing the personal engagement and the empowerment of local communities by opening awareness for some of the big issues impacting them (the fight against Ebola is only one of many great projects, even if one of the most visible), is just second to none! Continue the great work and making an amazing (media) impact!

My first encounter with Pci Media Impact was in 2010 when I joined the Integrated Coastal and Fisheries (ICFG) Initiative, a USAID-funded programme in the Western Region of Ghana. The initiative was looking at developing a behavioral change radio drama centered around issues in the fisheries. Pci Media (Sean and his team) helped with the development of a 52 week radio drama called Biribireba (something is coming in the local fante parlance). It became a hit and drew a huge listener-ship in the Western Region. It helped build a constituency of fisher folks that saw the need for change and demanded that change in the Ghanaian fisheries sector.

Thank you Pci Media Impact. Keep doing what you do.

PCI Media Impact is exceptional! Partnering with this organization in Ending Violence Against Children here in Liberia, and the fight against Ebola in West Africa, they have far exceeded expectations! I personally appreciate their Ebola survival initiative in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. PCI Media Impact is just the right organization West Africa needs at the moment.

Participatory approach is the key component of Media Impact’s work, where the final product is not as important as the process. When beneficiaries own the process and learn from it, then we are talking about sustainable impact.

I had the honor of working alongside PCI Media Impact to create the Comics Uniting Nations project that communicated the United Nations' Global Goals for Sustainable Development to readers around the world. It was a months-long, labor-intensive process that required buy-in from an incredibly diverse group of stakeholders. It was only possible through the hard work of the team at PCI Media.

Their professionalism, their dedication and their creativity are a constant inspiration, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
