Stories are powerful. They teach us lessons and shape our values. Stories that combine images and sound are especially effective in influencing how we think and act. Think back to Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech on the mall. Freedom-seekers toppling the Berlin Wall. Or Nelson Mandela emerging from prison to end South Africa's era of apartheid. These stories inspired people around the world to think, to start conversations, to take action.

Viewchange.org is harnessing the power of storytelling to change the world. This site combines the best global development video stories and groundbreaking new technology to enable individuals and organizations to stimulate change. Explore the Viewchange project more deeply at viewchange.org.

Through photography, film, and animation, these films show us what it means to be a woman in the poorest countries in the world. Take a look across the global gender gap, and see the Grand Prize winner of ViewChange Film Contest.
