The project consists of working with teenagers and youngsters from my town, who are from low income areas, and a population at risk of poverty. They are migrant children and we will work with them to compose songs where they can express what they want, and how they feel, and turn them into a podcast and upload them to the web, as a voice with a message.
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.
Teenagers and youngsters that currently are learning or want to learn music, have a vocation but are not taken into account. Many of them compose songs expressing their needs, or calling out for help, but nobody knows. I would like to work with them because I’ve seen very good results when a young person composes a song and eases his/her sentiments and heart needs.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
They will create songs to avoid divorces, desertion, physical abuse, or they will sing to nature to raise awareness about wealth VS poverty.
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
There are kids that belong to the previously mentioned group already recording audio podcast to make themselves heard.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
We could begin with not less than 50 teenagers/youngsters from the town.
Besides the microgrant funding, what other resources and support are you seeking for your project to ensure its success?
Broadcasting, viral effect, recognition of every teenager an youngster, permanent expert advice about media and broadcasting methods.
