Finalist – Myanmar (Burma): Collab Space for CJs

Despite extremely low Internet penetration rate, more Myanmar people are starting to use social networks and become “netizens”. However, limited knowledge on privacy and access to network, especially in smaller towns, becomes a barrier for them to tell their stories to the whole country or to the world. And with all those violences happening now, only a few of those who could access Internet are influencing the country's online community. We aim to have more ethical citizen journalists in the country who could share their stories to a broader network on a timely manner.
