explore.org is a philanthropic multimedia organization that makes documentary films and photographs to showcase extraordinary nonprofit efforts and leaders around the world. Through fact-finding missions to identify potential grant recipients, members of the explore.org Team see first hand where and how possible financial support might be used. explore.org opens the door to a world most people never get to see -- one that has been neglected by the mainstream media. Viewers meet the people affected by positive change catalyzed by philanthropy, and just as importantly, the leaders creating it.
explore.org's films and images document how people from all over the world, from every walk of life, are taking positive steps that have local impact and global relevance. Inspirational content for the web, television and theatrical viewing include interviews, conversations and stories with local heroes. Its multimedia portal brings these individuals together as a collective voice that celebrates and encourages selfless acts of giving.
explore.org strives to personalize the business of philanthropy while rediscovering the human element. The Team’s missions have led them to places where suffering is met with compassion and where the human spirit is kept alive by people who have dedicated their lives to humanity, not material gain.
Among explore.org’s founding principles are "Share What You Know" and "Never Stop Learning." These concepts have guided the team through Tanzania, Ethiopia, Ghana, Sudan, Darfur, Rwanda, China, Tibet, India, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, The Vatican, The Arctic, Greenland, Costa Rica, Canada, and many US cities. The journey for the explore.org Team continues with its core mission in mind -- to champion the selfless acts of others to inspire a revolution of giving.
explore.org is based on a concept developed by and advanced under the leadership of Charles Annenberg Weingarten, with the support of the Annenberg Foundation. Visit explore.org
