Weekly roundup: Toilet video and story tips

NEW VIDEO IN #GiveAShit SERIES: Sanitation and Health Rights in India (SHRI) is working with the youth stories-for-change platform Youth Ki Awaaz on a series of videos called “#GiveAShit,” about the SHRI’s efforts to end open defecation in India. The third in the series of five videos is out now, and it takes a political approach to the problem — how caste structures in India limit people’s access to toilets.

“A TALE OF TWO VIDEOS”: On his blog and on, nonprofit storytelling guru Andy Goodman writes about “a tale of two videos” by nonprofits — one successful, one not so much. Shows his usual keen insight into social-good storytelling. And while you’re at it, you might want to see Andy’s 2014 piece on Hatch, about letting your audiences in on what’s happening inside the “black box” of your organization.
