Proposals from March 18, 2014
This project is intended to raise funds for the promotion of livelihoods of the undeserved women in Uganda communities.In Uganda many women are under served or underrepresented in their communities therefor this project has come up to promote their livelihoods but lack funds,technical and material assistance to motivate them fully.
The aim is to train, facilitate, promote and create more awareness among the youth and the public on how to use social media, specifically YouTube, to air their views and also affect change in the local communities. This is by creating a youth online tv channel. Traditional media in Kenya is far too inadequate and not focused on issues affecting the youth, while leaders and policy makers are less concerned in involving the youth even on matters affecting the youth.
The project seeks to train on the use new media (Whatsapp and Facebook) to raise the voices of the Zimbabwean farm communities who have been largely marginalised after the country's government embarked on a land reform exercise so that their plight and views get to policy makers. We will use a mainstream media web platform to stir debate and discussion around rights to communal land and labour rights among other issues. Community based information groups (CBIG) are in existence and what they need most now is capacity building through intensive training.
Through this project we aim to empower, give awareness to school students that they have the ability and potential to better monitor 2014 presidential election of their community. Through this project we will train students on how to attend the election day not only for voting to their target candidate but also to observe the voting office if they are really observing rules of fair election or not,in case they find any issue we will prepare a report and will publish that on Facebook, independent Commission for Electoral Complaints, and Each candidate Facebook page on behalf of our organization
Girls in Sri Lanka are challenged with access to education, health and participation in society due to lack of transportation. The project is training girls in ICT, digital media and soccer skills providing computer, digital camera internet access, e learning material and trained to create and share digital media stories shared on a facebook group about their communities . The project will form “Dumbara Media” a Community Media Unit. This project need funding to conduct community media training for 30 girls and 10 boys.
Youth Media Center will provide a platform for disadvantaged youths to discover their talents, develop their skills by training them in the field of multimedia and ultimately securing their life by creating opportunities for employment. Through our programs we will inject and instill the sense of professionalism in their work so that they find a place to market their talent. Helping the youth to become a responsible and productive citizen will be our continuous effort.
The project will offer practical training to 20 chapter leaders of Uganda Women Entrepreneurs Association (UWEAL) limited in the use of multimedia to share business stories of their members with the rest of the women in Uganda. In particular they will learn how to make and upload digital stories (photo, video, text and audio). They will practice how to interact online.
l am proposing to conduct a training programme targeting citizen journalists. The training helps to lay the foundation for civil society advocates to become citizen journalists. It brings together journalism skills and advocacy goals to help citizen journalists share their perspectives and experience with decision makers and wider audiences to influence the discourse around community and related developmental issues. We have developed a training manual called change the world.
“Buluba Speaks” is for Training lepers on how they can express themselves using podcasts. These podcasts will cover stories and explore ways of reuniting these people with their families and the community after conducting training workshops in live broadcasting, recording and editing of podcasts. We will then create an online site where all these stories will be posted and distributed to local radio stations and shared with the global community. Historically Lepers have been rejected by the community and therefore their voices need amplification using traditional and modern media.
we look at going down the youth in the ghettos to give them courage that its possible.and we shall share our captions on a community television and radio.we also look at getting some young people who will have performed better to train then in our apprentice programme
