Sean and his team at PCI Media Impact always impress me every time I visit the office and hear about their latest list of projects. The reach and scope of the projects is quite awe inspiring, with activity on every continent.

Having worked on projects at the United Nations for twenty years, I can say that PCI Media Impact fills an important space in development education. They do a lot with a little, and it is inspiring to know they are out there doing such good and essential work.

PCI Media Impact is extremely high leverage. At the end of the day, it is we the people who will change the world- and we need to do it from the ground up. By informing minds and transforming behavior, PCI creates an endless ripple of positive impact.

Give it a larger budget and more partnerships.

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 at the forefront of design and execution of entertainment education programming. At the center of their success is a combination of community collaboration combined with the highest production standards possible. I have had the opportunity to work with PCI MI staff on several occasions, and they are creative, dynamic, and entrepreneurial--always ready to share and always ready to learn.

I have been fortunate to see the results of Media Impact's work around the globe: marginalized individuals turned community leaders, silenced voices creating a broadcast platform, and lives changed because of a story. The organization's unique community-building approach to their programs enhance the entire experience and magnify the broadcasts' impact. The staff are top-notch and their partners world class. If you are interested in changing the world, this is an organization you should support.

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.
