25 Years of Storytelling for the Global Good
A note from our founder
It was 25 years ago that we created an organization to shake the world to its core.
Today, we celebrate a milestone – the 25th anniversary of Population Media Center (PMC) marking our journey to empower women, address population growth, and create a sustainable planet through storytelling.
I have witnessed a tapestry of achievements woven by our incredible community. Jolokoto empowered thousands of Nigerians to access contraceptives and and was a finalist in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas awards. Kwishilya reached an estimated 659,440 weekly listeners in Zambia and BREAKAWAY, our innovative video game, has sparked global awareness of gender inequity and violence.
Together, we are shaping a future filled with hope, equality, and opportunity.
