Village Media has had the privilege of working with a number of nonprofits whose ideals we share and mission we have been able to support through our media expertise.
Village Media has had a long standing relationship relief and development organization Plenty International, producing several videos and their original web site plus several design updates. Their current web site is now edited in-house.
Plenty has been providing aid and support to the people of New Orleans and the Gulf region since day three after Hurricane Katrina. Village Media went down three years after the storm to document the work of volunteers and to interview people directly involved.
