Footage Foundation

Footage Foundation logo
Footage Foundation is a global nonprofit that seeks to amplify the voices of unheard young people and their communities with a focus on girls and young women. 

We design impactful, sustainable social change programs that use local technology and expressive multimedia tools (such as mobile digital storytelling) to bring the underrepresented voices and experiences of young people into conversations on the world’s most challenging issues, including violence against women and education. 

Our flagship program Girl-talk-Girl, funded by the U.S. Department of State, works with brave young women in NYC and St. Petersburg, Russia, and focuses on illuminating their experiences with gender-based violence by creating an international platform for dialogue. Like in all of our Footage initiatives, young women form a grassroots movement with storytelling and compassion at its core.

Four social science PhDs at University of Cambridge founded Footage; as such, all of our programs are underpinned by rigorous, cutting-edge research and theory on social change, transformation, and impact.
