How does Home Storytellers help other nonprofit organizations?
Home Storytellers is continually searching for nonprofit organizations with proven and sustainable solutions to the refugee crisis. Our world-class multimedia storytellers document real stories of people who have been benefited by their work. The resulting films and photographs are donated to the nonprofit organization to help them highlight their work to a broader audience and make a deeper impression on them.
How does Home Storytellers work?
We are proud to be an organization of world-class photojournalists and filmmakers with capabilities to create high quality images and films of meaningful personal stories that represent innovative and effective solutions to the refugee crisis.
Compelling visual storytelling is an effective and strategic mean for nonprofits to promote their mission and a proven approach to get the support of potential donors.
Home Storytellers partners with organizations in two ways:
While there is no formal application process, Home Storytellers staff continually research best practice organizations with proven and sustainable solutions to the refugee crisis. We look for innovation and success on protecting refugees’ safety, dignity, and human rights, their harmonious integration into the receiving communities, work on education, and development.
Once a nonprofit organization is selected and vetted, Home Storytellers sends a team to document their work. We create a film for them and provide access to all the still images. These storytelling assets are a powerful multiplier, raising significantly the beneficiary fundraising. Home Storytellers continues to promote our beneficiary organizations through our website and social media efforts.
