Proposals from February 28, 2013
This project involves equiping 25 community members with journalistic skills. The journalists will use the acquired skills to tell stories in their neighbourhood and serve as a lobby and advocacy for the voiceless. The stories will be published in the existing community blog http://www.laikipiaruralvoices.blogspot.com and shared on the social sites.The project operates under Arid Lands Information network (ALIN) (www.alin.net.com).
Building on JHR’s successful model of empowering local voices through training journalists overseas, the project will engage a team of 30 at-risk youth in Toronto to develop journalism skills and produce citizen media on themes of barriers to development and empowerment, through training and a field reporting trip. Stories produced will provide a kind of ‘visual census’ of the issues at-risk youth face, engage stakeholders, and source solutions.
This project will support female students in the target locality to end harmful traditional practices. In Ethiopia in general and Dukem locality in particular, access to the internet is insignificant. The girls in the locality will share their experiences in fighting harmful traditional practices through school mini media and local community radios. ICEDA will translate and upload the recorded audios to the national and international literates.
Youth groups from different places and cultures in Mexico are nodes of the Tlalana network www.tlalana.org.mx. They take action based on collective learning and experience exchange to solve local issues such as environmental problems, unemployment and violence. We want to train such nodes in audio editing, blogs and social networks to achieve greater visibility and facilitate their documenting and sharing capabilities between projects.
