We work at the intersection of social and environmental justice. Women and girls around the world are robbed of social power and self-determination. Eradicating these injustices is not only a crucial human rights issues, it's also intricately connected with the world's population and the creation of a sustainable planet..

Stories are powerful. We are drawn to them. We remember them. Imagine paying $0.04 USD to reach a person meaningfully. Imagine 67% of new health clinic clients saying that they came to seek services because of an entertaining radio show. These are the real implications of PMC shows..

There is good news. The solutions to our social and environmental challenges are many, and they are progressive. Your donation helps solve some of today's most pressing challenges..
