"Eyes and Ears Nuba," a local citizen journalism team, is one of the only sources of information about what's happening in the conflict-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Since June 2011, the government has maintained full-scale attacks on Nuban communities, targeting this ethnic group for their alliance with separatists responsible for South Sudan's independence. The Sudanese government has barred journalists and humanitarian workers from the Nuba Mountains, blinding the international media to the atrocities. As a result, "Eyes and Ears" is a critical window into this conflict.

"Eyes and Ears Nuba" was founded by Ryan Boyette, an American who stayed in the country with his Sudanese wife after his NGO evacuated. It is comprised mostly of local citizens from South Kordofan who lacked prior video, political, or advocacy experience. Boyette and colleagues document the life of the Nubans in the aftermath of government attacks, and share their stories with the international community.
