About the Book
SalaamGarage is a digital storytelling organization that partners with International NGOs and local non-profits. Participants (amateur and professional photographers, writers, videographers, etc.) connect with international NGOs, create and share independent media projects that raise awareness and cause positive change in their online and offline social communities. We partner with grass roots, forward thinking organizations. Through our trips, one experiences rare access to the work of social entrepreneurs that would otherwise go unreported, while engaging with local communities on an entirely new level. Our teams of traveling media makers publish their SalaamGarage projects in magazines, books and newspapers. They get the word out when they produce gallery exhibitions, write blogs, give presentations, organize fundraisers, and more. Our teams participate on-the-ground as creative global citizens, communicators, and change makers. We are the media now. Join us.
