Our Mission and approach

Harriet Communications is a social impact strategy and creative services company that works to build the capacity of mission-driven institutions to transform perceptions and educate communities about issues of sustainability, equality and justice. We use our international experience in the areas of community development, gender inclusion, stigma and discrimination, youth, and the arts to design creative, culturally relevant, strategic messaging. We develop documentary films and connect organizations with producers and influencers, enabling them to reach more stakeholders and audiences. 

Our PEOPLE

Harriet Communications was founded by Nyasha Laing. We are lawyers, policy wonks, writers, and fundraisers trained in documentary filmmaking and storytelling. As hybrid people, we have great understanding and empathy for communities on the margins.
