Berdiri is a portal for every day people, photographers, journalists, photo journalists, activists and NGO’s who wish to stand up and make a difference in the world. Berdiri is a home for facts, information and editorial stories for all issues surrounding humanitarian and conservation problems. Berdiri helps bring to light the humanitarian and conservation issues of the world. A place to learn the facts, read the stories, see the photos and watch the videos. A place to be inspired to stand up and make the change required for specific causes.
There is a resounding gap between delivering the news and providing calls to action. We are curious and love to consume news but in tragic circumstances that require sustained and a banded effort to effect change, these stories need more than a 30 second news grab. These stories need to be told in a way that inspires people to want to act. Berdiri is a way to bring these tragic circumstances into the light through powerful story telling and empower people and also provide ways to TAKE ACTION. Any individual reading an article or a story through Berdiri can help be part of the solution.

Furthermore if you are a photo journalist or wanting to enter into the photo journalism industry then soon Berdiri will launch a portal to empower any seasoned professional or amateur activist to help tell a story to effect change. This feature is a little while away so in the meantime there is need to write about the facts and present this to keep the awareness drive alive.
As a part of Berdiri up and coming photo journalists get to bid on jobs. A job is posted for the need for a photo journalist to travel to and photograph a certain location and or issue. A photographer places a bid of a minimum $1 and if the job reaches the required cut off to proceed then a photographer is chosen to proceed.
