As well as disseminating our work through major international media outlets, Ruom’s members regularly partner with development agencies, providing high-quality communications solutions and advice to the non-profit sector. To address the different needs of non-profit organizations, as opposed to the mainstream media, we launched Ruom Development in 2014.

As visual and written material becomes increasingly important for organizations seeking to reach a broad audience, Ruom’s writers, photographers, videographers and researchers have been providing training, as well as writen and visual content to some of the world’s biggest NGOs.

Through our wealth of experience in the field of documentar media, Ruom adds depth, dignity, and empathy to promotional campaigns.

With the ability to dispatch multi-talented teams of documentary professionals, Ruom is always ready to tell your stories, anywhere in the world.
