I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh and I have been bridgeblogging the Bangladeshi and South Asian Blogosphere in Global Voices since 2005. Social Media is my passion. I like to follow the groundbreaking outreach projects of Rising Voices and write about them.

FOKO Madagascar was full of activities this month. It went on to explore new voices from the high schools, introduced citizen media workshops in a city far from the busy capital, and helped young high school students to enter in an international video contest. They also live-blogged their recent workshop which helps the world to learn about these budding citizen media activists from Madagascar.
Eduardo Ávila and Cristina Quisbert presented Voces Bolivianas at the We Media conference in Miami last month and got much appreciation. On March 18 2008 the closing program of El Alto II workshops was held and certificates distributed. With all these successes behind the Voces Bolivianas project is looking forward to expand to other cities of Bolivia terming this as a movement.
HiperBarrio's presence at Medelink 2008, a local festival of digital culture, might have helped the citizen media outreach project discover a model of sustainability while extending their work to more communities on the outskirts of Medellín.
While the devastations of Hurricane Ivan were under reported in the international media, Malagasy bloggers from the Foko Blog Club filled the void using photos, videos and a map mashup. The Rising Voices outreach project also expanded to the second largest town in Madagascar.
