The projects implemented by PCI are unique in their ability to captivate audiences through creative storytelling. They create real, visible behavior changes and lead to positive impacts for a variety of causes across the globe. I have been fortunate enough to experience this first-hand, and am proud to have been part of this incredible team of people.

PCI does amazing work, using entertainment and media in this incredibly useful way to actually impact lives and communities around the world. The level of detail and care that the staff have towards the project is truly admirable. I loved my time interning at the office, I got to feel that I was doing real work. I worked on the ISurvivedEbola campaign, and I know that the videos that PCI made and the impact that they had on those African communities was immeasurably substantial.

I worked with PCI media impact in May 2016 as a volunteer under their Wild For Life Campaign that aims tackling illegal trade in wildlife.I must say it was quite an illuminating experience for me, as I got to learn about other endangered wildlife like the Pangolin save for the elephant that I knew before as well measures to protect them.
