Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.
We will work with adolescents and youth whose ages are in between 14 to 20 native of Neamt, northeastern region in Romania. Children are also excluded from online participation due to limited knowledge on tools and lack of opportunities. The Rising voices grant is a great chance to empower and give a voice to adolescents and youth in this occupation, and for this they will make a online foto expozition.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
We will develop stories of young people with a photo. The photo will spike about: identity and origin at the roma comunities, family ties, labor and education conditions service access, living conditions, etc. They will have a space to share their interests, opinion, worries and expectations. Troughout the stories, the local community will also have an opportunity to understand better the roma people and the roma culture.,
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
During the project we intend to make partnerships with other NGOs in the media, such as Roma Journalists Association, they are a media experts and they will provide them free technical assistance whenever a young participant will needed, and will help them to face difficulties.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
We will train 20 adolescents and youth, during 2 days. After the training session they will make teams of four persons and work together. We will give each team cameras (5 camera, one each for a team) to capture the most significant images and post them on the blog (five blog site) and one facebook.
Besides the microgrant funding, what other resources and support are you seeking for your project to ensure its success?
For this project we need only microgrants but it will be very interesting to learn about resources to develop stories with photos.
