What We Do

Training

C4C works closely with non-governmental organizations, community groups, and in some cases governmental agencies, in developing communication capabilities to realize their goals for economic development and social justice. Currently, C4C designs and conducts training workshops in the following areas:

  • Participatory video in support of community development and women's empowerment
  • Media literacy and critical viewing
  • Advocacy and communication strategies

Following training, C4C maintains close links with partner organizations in an ongoing supportive and advisory role.

Production

C4C has produced independent human affairs programs and commissioned documentaries for UNIFEM, the Women's Feature Service, and Women's World Banking, among other organizations. C4C productions - including Patients and Doctors Who Are Partners and the ARE YOU LISTENING series - are used by community and international development organizations, in university curricula, and for professional training purposes. C4C programs have been broadcast on PBS, on commercial and cable stations, and in over 40 countries worldwide.
