As borders close Footage Foundation is breaking down isolation through the stories we tell each other about ourselves, our lives. Using the science of storytelling, connection, and economic empowerment, Her{connect}Her raises voices as it elevates lives. Contribute today in honor of World Refugee Day 2017.

We raise voices to elevate lives.

At Footage, our mission is to amplify the voices of youth as means of igniting change within themselves and their communities. 

Through the use of local technology and media arts, we support young people so that their experiences are communicated, their voices amplified, and their solutions acted upon to inspire sustainable transformation.

We also partner with amazing organizations, helping them harness and capture the stories and experiences of the young people whom with they work.

The fine print: Footage Foundation was founded by PhD students and colleagues from Cambridge University in 2008 with a burning commitment to educational, cultural, and social initiatives that access youth voices and perspectives, as well as inspire people to be active participants in changing their local and global communities. Today, we are a thriving 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit organization prioritizing the voices, ideas, and skills of intensely marginalized young people and their communities. Our collective covers most regions of the world.
