Shine a Light teaches the digital arts to marginalized children all over Latin America, so that their communities can come to see themselves -- and show themselves -- in a new light.


Usando mídia cidadã e colaborando com ONGs e poder público local, conseguimos fazer um impacto muito além do nosso tamanho. Monitoramos nosso empenho constantemente e fazemos avaliações regulares, para garantir que usemos o dinheiro dos doadores e o tempo dos voluntários da maneira mais eficaz e eficiente.

By using citizen media and collaborating with local NGOs and governments, we have been able to have an impact far beyond our small size. We monitor our work constantly and engage in regular evaluations, so that we use donor money and volunteer time as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Usando medios de comunicación popular y colaboración con ONGs y gobiernos locales, logramos hacer un impacto mayor que nuestro tamaño. Con monitoreo constante, evaluamos y criticamos nuestro trabajo para garantizar el uso más eficaz y eficiente de recursos escasos.

Our ten year evaluation in 2010 showed that

83% organizations expanded their services as a result of their collaboration with us
79% of projects changed government policy in a progressive direction
63% of participating youth became leaders in their community
83% of participants became mentors to other kids
And perhaps most shockingly, 38% of participants went on to higher education, in comparison to fewer than 3% of poor children in Brazil, Colombia, or Argentina.

Since 2010,
Our FavelaNews project reduced homicide rates in four of the most violent favelas of Recife from 600/100,000 to fewer than 10.
FavelaNews now reaches 200,000 viewers a month, almost all of them young people in the favelas of Recife.
YouTube and Facebook have registered more than a million views of our films made in collaboration with marginalized children.
Our work in the Amazon won the 2016 Intercultural Innovation Award from the united Nations.
En Busca de la Vida, our telenovela made with indigenous youth in La Paz, was shown on national TV in Bolivia.
Film Festivals in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the US have shown our films.

We are now working with The UN Alliance of Civilizations, BMW, Grand Challenges Canada, and the Maria Cecília Souto Vidigal Foundation to develop effective metrics for this impact.
