PCI media impact is impressive and I love being with them.

PCI is just not there to tell stories but they are going beyond telling stories and reaching face to face with the people who has the issues on their mind.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Congratulate them.

My name is Saa from Liberia and I am very impress about the work done by PCI media impact in our communities.

The Innovation and creativity PCI media uses in their productions is very amazing and wroth to be honored.

For me personally PCI media should be given more donors support in order to make them reach out to every Conner of the world with their innovation and creativity.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Commend them and request for more commitment from their staff.

PCI media impact is an amazing organization that i hope to have the opportunity to serve in.

My name is Beyan F. Pewee from Liberia and from the time I came across PCI media my community has experience a life changing action from their programs and projects like Eat some keep some and the End violence against children campaign.

PCI media impact is a very great institution that is not just using storytelling to change the world but they are also empowering and teaching people how to sustain themselves.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

just recommend that the team continue to work harder and stay united as they I.

PCI is an excellent organization doing innovative and really strong work. The creativity using storytelling and accessibility to hard-to-reach and marginalized communities to improve social and environmental issues is absolutely worthwhile and helps move our world towards peace and sustainability.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see more shared resources from PCI. With such a wealth of experience and success, PCI could offer some entertainment education resources and good practices to other organizations.

Working with PCI Media Impact has been an honor. From my first meeting with the CEO to my latest international trip, with their Communications Manager, I have come to know this organization inside and out. I can honestly say they impact people from all over the globe. Moreover, one of the best indicators of the power of PCI Media Impact would be the fact that every employee and contractor (around the word) is proud to serve and is dedicated to the mission and goals of this crucial organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Scale up their work and tell PCI Media Impact's story- they do impressive work that could easily be hit online videos for every type of audience (policymakers, youth, donors... ).

PCI Media Impact is truly an organization that helps one connect people with stories that matter the most. The write-ups on various sensitive issues are praiseworthy to say the least. The board members are accessible and always ready to lend a helping hand to a common cause which is bringing people together for a common cause. Kudos to the entire team and wish them all the success in their future endeavors.

PCI tells the stories that connect people to their environment. Working with PCI has opened my mind and heart to the power of storytelling for changing the way people see the ocean. I look forward to working with the professionals at PCI for many years to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would provide PCI with millions of dollars so they could work in more places telling more stories making connections that matter and changing the world.

PCI Media Impact is a truly inspirational organization that does the job they set out to do. Through interesting and entertaining means they reach the hearts and minds of people in the communities they work in. Everyone loves a good story and PCI Media Impact gives people this and in so doing promotes social change. With a tightly knit staff who build off each others' skills and experience and work with locals to produce truly remarkable work, both the work atmosphere and their final product is life changing. From schools in NYC, to the jungles of West Africa, to the slums of India and villages of South America - PCI Media Impact spreads a positive message and empowers communities to do better for themselves. My greatest wish for the organization is to spread their model to every corner of the world!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reduce the reliance of donor funds so that they do not limit the work they do. Their capacity is limitless and I would love to see them grow.
