Amplify voices of young women refugees.


#AreYouBraveEnough?

Invest in the expansion of our award-winning, innovative Girl-talk-Girl program to young women living as refugees in Europe. 

Girl-talk-Girl uses storytelling to increase compassion and cross-cultural connection, empowering young women throughout the world with knowledge that they are not alone. Girl-talk-Girl has already positively impacted the lives of young women in New York City and St. Petersburg, Russia. Watch our micro-documentary (above) to see how brave participants used their voices to spark a movement to end violence against women.

Deepest gratitude to those who have already so passionately invested in our work. Our first crowdfunded initiative continues as we’ve reached almost $8,000. We believe that as the refugee crisis destabilizes lives and communities, the voices of young women–the backbone of those communities–need to be heard. Therefore, it is with a sense of urgency that we put your investment in our ground-breaking voice programs to immediate use.

This Autumn, we will commence working with young women refugees in three communities across Europe to address their experiences with conflict, violence, and war.

Through our digital storytelling work, our goal is to gain insights into the lives, needs, and resilience of these young women. This crowdfunded initiative is no longer a short-term campaign, but is now part of our long-term strategy to implement effective, viable, grassroots programs true to young people and to Footage’s vision.

Our unique approach will make a difference. See how we work.

"Women and girls affected by conflict must be regarded as more than victims of brutality; they are agents of change who, if given the opportunity, can transform their societies.”

(Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Executive Director of Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace, and Security)
