Every day, Media Impact works with incredible partners around the globe to tell the stories that change the world. In 27 years of work, together we have produced more than 3,000 episodes of 75 radio and television productions that have collectively reached more than 1 billion people in over 40 countries. We believe in this work because we have seen its impact over and over again.

And lately, it seems, others are taking note.

Last week, the BBC ran a special report on the power of soap operas to educate audiences around the globe. We were very pleased that our Executive Director, Sean Southey, was featured along with several of our programs and partners. To read the story, please click here.

Additionally, this year our work has been featured on the NY Times Fixes Blog and the World Bank BlogPeople, Spaces, Deliberation.

We are proud that our work has been showcased on these notable sites, but are even more grateful that the world is taking note of the power of Entertainment-Education programs to create a healthier, more sustainable and equitable world.
