Proposals Cambodia from March, 2013

Finalist: The Cambodian Grassroots Social Media Project

The proposal is to develop a social media training program for community-based organizations and grassroots activists working on human rights in Cambodia, with the long-term goal of increasing the sharing of human rights information domestically and internationally. The project will consist of 1) the development of a social media toolkit designed to impart the know-how and tools to create successful and compelling citizen media; and 2) 4 pilot trainings for a total of 40 trainees, who will be given the toolkit in soft-copies on USB sticks to facilitate access to the materials contained within.

Cambodia: Old Bunong Stories in New Times

The MRDC project of Nomad RSI have been active in the indigenous populated province of Mondulkiri to preserve the culture of its main ethnic group, the Bunong. This project aims at continuing this work by training young Bunong volunteers on producing locally made films of traditional stories told by elders and on broadcasting them through social media tools previously developed and mobile phones.
