Proposals Peru from February, 2013
The project seeks to strengthen the abilities of a group of adolescents and youth who are currently child domestic workers (CDW) or former CDW on the development and dissemination of stories through a radio program and a blog. Adolescents and youth will address issues related to CDW in order to create awarness among the Cajamarca comunity. The issues addressed through the radio and blog will serve to inform, follow up, and intervene.
Quechua children will be trained in script-writing, storyboarding, blogging, directing and presenting in order to deliver a series of short films on customs of Andean Culture. The project brief is to record stories that make the children proud to be Quechua.
