My project seeks to say the history of indigenous people, their role in economically,culture and traditional language and how they were discriminated during pre-colonial period even now. I will accomplish this using media and historical proverbs relating to Rwandan cultural.
A move to leverage Rwanda’s mandatory Umuganda (monthly community service day) that brings all able bodied persons above the age of 18 and below 65 to participate in volunteer community work. This projects aims to mobilize communities to share experiences, challenges and solutions for the day aka umunsi w’umuganda, meaning “contribution made by the community as a contribution and building the country by citizens themselves.
As Rwanda tries to come to terms with horrors of 1994 genocide, the country has attracted a lot of global media attention. It’s sad a huge chunk of Rwandan stories online today, are told by foreigners. The stories of Twa, the minority Rwandan community remains untold. Predominantly living in the forests, they know very little about the new media. We seek to reach and train them via workshops in the art of blogging, photography and video making
