Peru: Amantani for the World

Amantani is an island located on Lake Titicaca in Puno, where its residents take part in rural community tourism. However, travel agencies are the ones the most benefit from this activity by being an intermediary with the travelers. That is why we hope to have the population become active on the internet (blogs and social media) so that they can offer this touristic service directly.

The project will train Youth and Adults in digital content production of their own culture and as rural reporters. Within three days of training in Puno and continuous support through Internet, telephone and AM Radio for the production of documents, Audio and Video. It is intended that rural communities will be represented on the Internet, in their own language, while transmitting announcements and news between communities.

In this context, we will bring workshops to teach the people running community radios how to use ITC to run open, free and pluralistic radios, trainning them in the use of different “new media” tools like Audacity, social media, etc. Always from the perspective of free culture.
