Video Volunteers (VV) is a project which provides media accessibility and skills to the underpriviledged communities in India. They have set up a dozen 'community video units' in India, and have launched a Digital Media Learning Centre at Goa.
Video Volunteers (VV) was started in 2002 by Jessica Mayberry and Stalin K, as a project of Creative Visions Foundation. Later, in 2003 it was registered as a non-profit based organization with the primary goal of creating a sustainable and global media industry at the base of the pyramid.
We have a unique vision and mission. We envision an alternative media landscape in which tens of thousands of people around the world, living in slums and villages, are producing high quality video content that brings awareness to communities and empowers members to take action.
Our mission is to empower the world’s poorest citizens to participate in the community media movement so they can right the wrongs they witness and become players in the global media revolution. Providing disadvantaged communities with the journalistic, critical thinking and creative skill they need, we create financially self-sustaining, locally-owned grassroots projects that teach people to articulate and share their perspectives on the issues that matter to them, on a local and a global scale.
