We use a strategic approach to distribution, from targeted screenings and events to radio, SMS and social media, ensuring that its content reaches the community. While dialogue affects dozens, media impacts millions. We use media to stir up thoughts and discussions across a whole society about the root causes of violence and how to overcome differences.

Our Core Values

OutMost Media Development has an unwavering commitment to our core values and principles:

Access to information is a human right

Information and education are critical to the health, safety, and dignity of all communities. During periods of crisis, timely and accurate information is essential to ending conflicts, securing food, medicine, shelter, and emergency services.

We believe in the power of storytelling and the simple, wonderful magic of the radio/TV dramas.

Audio and visual storytelling transcends language and literacy, communicating crucial information while providing sustenance for the soul. For communities experiencing trauma and starved for hope, the power of film, of a story well told, of a spectacle, of an adventure, or romance can open people's hearts and minds, rekindling joy and helping people heal. This is especially true for children, who constitute half of the world's forcibly displaced people.

Communities are the source of wisdom and the center of empowerment.

We value a participatory, culturally respectful, and inclusive approach to social change. A community that speaks for itself is a community that can change and heal itself. OutMost Media Development believes in engaging communities in assessing their own needs and in managing, implementing, and evaluating the programs designed to meet those needs. We are committed to building skills and capacity in the communities we work with, laying the foundation for greater resilience and increased self-reliance.

Humanitarian principles are the basis of all our work.

We are committed to addressing human suffering wherever we are able. We are dedicated to helping save lives, supporting physical and psychosocial well-being, and promoting dignity and human rights.
