PCI Media Impact, Inc. has been an interesting organisation that works to enhance our quality of communication through story telling techniques. I have had an opportunity of working with this team to enhance our communication skills through an innovative method of capturing the story by capturing the moments of our activities through a visual camera! It is always a pleasure to work them again, any time any where.

Best,

Hari

Pci-Media, a non-profit I would love to work with again. They are on point with the direction of their projects and executes them precision. I help them with their video department, and storytelling and education aspect is done like I never seen before. They are very organized and does a ton of great work, can't wait to see what they will produce in the future.

A group of energetic change-makers using storytelling for social change. This HERO organization not only uses storytelling for health related behavior change, but also for environmental conservation, animal rights and many more issues around the world. A perfect team of skilled individuals who employ Entertainment-Education strategy for social change, but are not limited to it. Recently the team started to use Positive Deviance and Liberating Structures in their work. I have been very fortunate to have worked with PCI Media Impact and participate in social change with them. WE NEED MORE SUCH GREAT NONPROFITS.

I had a very exciting and enriching opportunity to work with PCI Media Impact on one of their international projects. Media Impact as an organization and team are focused, diligent and very professional with skills that relate and empower communities around the world. They have for years, used the power of story telling to change the world and indeed have had a great impact. They not only change behaviors but empower communities to take action for themselves, adding the crucial sustainability component to wherever they work. Definitely, they are excellent strategic communication planners, program managers, facilitators, and partners to work with.

PCI Media Impact is my favourite non-profit! I have worked with them in Ghana and seen first hand how their storytelling methodologies put into practice, work! They were able to build the capacity of many different sectors of the community; from fishermen to radio producers to local government officials. Through participatory approaches, the community took ownership of the project and it has had a lasting impact on their lives. This is what I like the most. They do not have a top-down approach. They listen to the community and then teach them and show them how to make a difference themselves. They give the community the tools to empower themselves and best of all, in an entertaining way! They really do tell the stories that change lives! Brilliant!

For such a small team, they do extraordinary work. If I could, I would give them more resources to expand into more regions and develop new partnerships, which have such a meaningful impact on so many.

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.

PCI Media Impact is an extraordinary non-profit organization that creates models of entertainment in collaboration with hundreds of communities in need across the globe for the purpose of social change. The Sabido method of Entertainment-Education that they employ is consistently successful in educating said communities through something that is exciting to watch or listen to together. I had the pleasure of working in collaboration with members of PCI Media Impact two years in a row through a class in Universtiy of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and their support, integrity, and warm, well-intended nature in tackling many tough social issues we all face in one way or another today is truly inspiring, unique, and remarkable.

PCI-Media Impact commits extraordinary work, talent, and effort to empower people all over the world to share their stories in order to create change. I cannot say enough good things about this organization! I will always cherish the time I worked with Media Impact as a student of the Clinton School of Public Service in St. Lucia with the My Island My Community program. Not only did Media Impact impart the necessary tools to create a positive change in behavior regarding Climate Change but working with the entire team was a wonderful experience. Sean, Brenda, Alleyne and everyone else with Media Impact treats everyone with such kindness and respect.
