The world spends $20 billion every year caring for victims of violence, providing life-saving assistance to over 100 million people devastated by wars and violent conflict. A record 71 million people have fled their homes due to violence or persecution, impacting countries near and far. When war breaks out, it brings all other human progress to a halt, for a generation or more. That's why the World Bank now identifies violent conflict as the primary driver of global poverty and human suffering.
For three decades, we have produced TV, radio, and internet programming to catalyze social change-including. Our basic premise is that well-crafted, entertaining media programs can have a profound impact on how people think about themselves, their neighbors, and their society. We use popular culture and compelling storytelling to reach huge numbers of people with positive messages. In every country where we work, we seek to create an environment that supports tolerance and coexistence.
