Jacob BuurmaJacob Buurma launched Vibrant Content in 2011 to provide communications services to change-making organizations. From a formative childhood trip to East Berlin (before the wall came down), to graduate studies on Mother Teresa, to documenting the impact of microfinance in South America, Jacob has a life-long passion for global issues and social justice. He believes both non-profit and for-profit organizations have a role to play in improving life for those in the margins of our world. He holds an undergraduate degree at William and Mary in Virginia, a Master’s degree in theology from Regent College (University of British Columbia) and studied web and graphic design at George Brown College in Toronto.
