Why is StrengthIN ground-breaking?-06.jpg
 
 

We at Footage Foundation (Footage) have been working tirelessly to develop StrengthIN, the first evidence-based initiative focused on sustainable development and the mental, social, and emotional wellbeing of young women. Our campaign by the same name, StrengthIN: Where wellbeing meets global transformation launched this week, raising funds and awareness both online and in-person.

First off, it offers a more human and holistic blueprint for development by taking into account overlooked basic needs, such as self-worth and connection. These needs are virtually ignored in global crises — times when feelings of shame and disconnection are amplified.

StrengthIN is also set to use Footage’s Theory of Change, which is informed by research and guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to collate real-time data and study the connection between individual and global transformation.

Executive Director and Co-Founder of Footage, Dr. Kristen Ali Eglinton, says,

“Our goal is a paradigm shift in humanitarian aid, as we provide rich data tracking the ripple effect of young women’s wellbeing within the global development sphere — how self-worth, compassion, and connection impact development indicators, such as income and education.”

Footage’s work with young women is unique. We use media arts, peer leadership, and technology to build programs where the world’s young women share their stories and design solutions to issues that deeply affect their lives but are not often discussed openly. Learn more about our programs from the past 10 years: Girl-talk-GirlHer{connect}Her.

Dr. Eglinton says,

“Our tested methodology works to break cycles of shame and build self-worth through young women’s compassionate action and connection. This is important, because when we break cycles of shame, young women can maximize their individual potential and positively impact their communities.”

Through StrengthIN, Footage is building upon its wide coalition of global partners: local NGOs, large international organizations, experts in social/behavioral sciences and technology, and young women themselves, all of whom would benefit from this rich source of data.
