Peripheral Vision International (PVI) seeks a graphic designer to design compelling graphics to be used alongside a letter seeking donations (called a remittance letter) from the public for PVI's work. PVI uses media, technology, and popular culture to catalyze social change in East Africa. Working in a multidisciplinary team and together with partners, PVI designs and tests communication on health, livelihoods, and citizenship for hard-to-reach and marginalized populations.
This project will enable PVI to solicit funding from the public, which up to now we have not developed a mechanism to do so. This will increase funding to advocate on pressing social issues in East Africa and other developing countries. The work of PVI has a significant impact, with one of its programs, Wanji Games, a gamified 'choose your own adventure' style game utilizing basic mobile telephony, receiving over 1.8 million calls in 2018. Our research has shown a high return on investment.
PVI’s mission is to change media landscapes to serve and empower marginalized populations in developing countries. For the past five years, PVI’s primary goal has been to create a better life for its audience in East Africa by shaping social norms through media innovation.
