Watch it – Share it – See change

Video is one of the most powerful advocacy tools available to engage citizens, organisations, decision makers, to bring about change.Watching a video and sharing it when you think it will make a difference is already making that difference. Inviting people you know to stop, watch, think and act upon their convictions is what this newsletter is about.
Advocacy is not just about videos and our website is full of information about our advocacy actions at local, national, Pan African and international level but in the world in which we live, the web is our best and fastest advocacy platform, and you are one of our key partners in bringing about change that way.Our videos are about people and issues affecting them. They trusted us enough to share their stories, our role is to put them in the development context and make their voices heard and taken into account; for that to happen we need a critical mass of socially engaged citizens mobilized around them and talking about those issues drawing from existing people-owned responses that could work even better and wider if fully and sustainably supported.
From now on these videos and others to come are yours and we wish to believe that with your support they will be watched by millions of people because tall oaks from little acorns grow…
