Seeking a filmmaker to travel to Ghana!

Instead of sending volunteers to 'help' people in developing countries which sometimes does more harm than good— we send them to learn from locals.

We pair our trip participants with handpicked African storytellers to provide you with immersive experience that connect them to Ghana's brightest minds. 

This isn’t your typical volunteer abroad trip. We don't dig wells or take selfies with orphans. We join forces with those in the ground who are rewriting narratives about Africa.

We flip the power dynamic typically involved in international volunteering and create a space where people can think critically about social issues and development. 

We're looking for a filmmaker who can capture the work we do on the ground. 


  • Have experience shooting and editing videos
  • Have your own equipment 

Here’s the low down…

Your program fees to participate in our August trip will be completely covered. This includes the following:

  • 10 hours of pre-departure training on topics including: cross-cultural communication, anti-oppression and conscious storytelling

  • A virtual toolkit to familiarize yourself with Ghana's history, culture and current affairs

  • Airport transfers

  • In-country orientation

  • Accommodations 

  • Food: 2 meals per day

  • 24/7 support on the ground

Airfare & medications not included. 


To apply, you should be available to participate in our program that’s taking place in Accra, Ghana from August 14 to 30.

While a significant portion of your in-country expenses will be covered, you’ll still need to cover some of your expenses as indicated above. 

Applications accepted on a rolling basis until July 22.

Ready to apply? Fill out the form below.
