ChildHope’s mission is to strengthen the capacity of partner NGOs to defend and promote the rights of marginalized children and young people.
ChildHope believes in self-development, and sees its role as a facilitator in this process, primarily through the capacity building of partners in developing countries.
The Brief – Photographing Peace
Child Hope requires a short promotional film shot in a documentary style to showcase the diverse work of the organisation. An important objective of the film will be to educate the audience of what constitutes ‘violence against children’ and expose the several ways in which it manifests in different forms through a wide range of issues and in turn how Child Hope is supporting partner organisaitons to challenge these injustices and make a very real difference to the lives of children.
The primary objective of this film is to be used for fundraising through screenings at fundraising events, corporate presentations, online and dvd distribution to current and potential donors.
It will be possible to take a professional photographer which could result in a photography exhibition and film screening and would also give Child Hope a portfolio of photographs for their website and print.
This project will cost approximately £4000 per project visited. So MIX will be seeking sponsorship from £4000 to £16000.
Child Hope has a diverse range of projects in 3 different continents challenging different issues. Several of these projects could be featured depending on resources. Below is a shortlist of suitable projects:
