WITNESS Training Initiatives

WITNESS regularly conducts on-site trainings with our Core Partners, teaching them how to document human rights abuses safely and effectively with video and how to use video to further their advocacy goals.

Ultimately, we give our partners the necessary skills to become self-sufficient in their use of video in advocacy. In some cases we also build their capacity to train other groups in their communities that want to incorporate video into their work -- an important step toward achieving our goal of creating self-sustaining video advocacy initiatives worldwide.
