The project aims at voicing challenges faced by Kitezi residents which arise from the presence of a sanitary landfill in their vicinity.
Selected participants will be trained in video coverage and creating visual stories through photographs, use of internet, radio/TV to create a platform to express their grievances. A documentary will be produced to illustrate experience of community members, stories and narratives of challenges faced.
