MIRA's mission is to give all vulnerable people a voice by teaching industry-relevant digital media skills that drive creativity, empower self-expression and facilitate access to decent work in the digital sphere.
MIRA was founded on the belief that every community has an important story to tell — if they are provided with the right tools and skills. Unprecedented new tools for information sharing have been made available, but many communities’ voices are still not being heard, trapping them in a cycle of poverty, exclusion -- and increasingly -- conflict and displacement.
We are dedicated to providing employable skills digital media along with knowledge of responsible, fact-based positive storytelling. By imparting these skills, we empower young men and women to make their own voices heard -- and help them to access sustainable. well-paid employment -- in line with Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent work for all.
This not only builds sustainable livelihoods, but contributes to peace, prosperity and stability by making all voices heard.
