PCI Media Impact is an innovative leader in using broadcast media to bring about positive social change. During 30 years of work with partners, PCI Media Impact has produced more than 5,000 episodes of 100 programs, increasing knowledge, changing attitudes and facilitating behavior change on some of the most pressing issues of our time, including HIV/AIDS prevention, reproductive and sexual health, child and maternal survival, water, sanitation and hygiene issues, human rights and sustainable development. These productions have reached more than 1 billion people in 50 countries. The organization's most recent work has been in West Africa, where it played a leading role in the Ebola crisis. The #ISurvivedEbola Campaign was an outstanding contribution to bring hope in a region of total despair. By elevating survivors and putting their stories on the air, they gave hope to millions and positive guidance on how to prevent and/or treat this deadly disease. It is truly one of the best ways I know to leverage the donor dollar to achieve results and make the world a better place...one story at a time!

By harnessing the power of broadcast media, PCI Media Impact reaches people throughout the world with life-saving messages of health, hope, inspiration and environmental sustainability. Having spent my career in the development of non-for-profit organizations, I can attest to the fact that PCI Media Impact is an innovative "best-in-class"organization...superbly managed with a staff of first-rate professionals and dedicated volunteers. PCI Media Impact enjoys the highest ratings of all the watchdog organizations and donor money is often matched by generous donors to know the value of the work they do. Most impressive of all is PCI Media Impact's operational methodology...working in partnership with outstanding local organizations in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the United States, their accomplishments are increased as they train a new generation of media professionals in the art of information-education. This is an amazing organization. It deserves your support and encouragement.

PCI Media Impact is an incredible organization that uses the power of media and entertainment to help bring about social changes in 35 countries and growing! When I first learned about this organization it really appealed to me because I feel that entertainment-education is one of the most effective way to reach out to a community in a non-threatening fashion that is engaging and empowering. PCI Media Impact also not only educates for change but also helps by being part of the solution. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and I hope that they will continue to grow and continue to bring about positive change throughout communities worldwide.
