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. We aim to have more ethical citizen journalists in the country who could share their stories to a broader network on a timely manner.

    A very worthy goal…telling stories can be healing for individuals, and there is much need for healing here in this region.

    • Thanks Laura. Perhaps people there need to heal themselves. 🙂

    Great! It might be helpful to hear more unbiased voices from unexplored corners of Myanmar especially regarding ethnic issues.

    • Yes, friend. That’s what we’d like to aim, too. You know? Like two different opinion from two locals from same area 😉
