See it. Film it. Change it.


"WITNESS started with a mission to give cameras to the world. Over time, we have evolved to provide training on filming and storytelling to our partners to ensure their videos would have impact in defending human rights. Now that we live in a “cameras everywhere” world, our dream has expanded: the safe and effective use of video by the millions of citizens around the world who are documenting and sharing their stories with the world." - Yvette Alberdingk Thijm, Executive Director
