Meet our creative department sharing stories that need to be told
In our ten years supporting exceptional grassroots organizations and working with communities, supporters and volunteers, we've come across some incredible stories. But, we needed an avenue to tell them.
Stomp It Out Productions aims to make humanitarian documentaries that inspire its viewers to act, create change and become global citizens. Funds from our films also go back into the communities that we work with to continue the cycle of positive change. For more information, Stomp It Out Productions has its own website.
A story of survival, loss, strength, courage, endurance and of coming out, of a life lived undercover.

The amazing story of a group of Soweto teenagers as they break free from poverty through the power of music and dance.
GVN Foundation wants our films to engage and inspire our community, so therefore we are currently offering a free viewing of Stomp It Out with every donation made to Kliptown Youth Program, the basis of the Stomp It Out story.
