The project provides a platform on twitter for speakers of Yoruba in Nigeria and around the world. Like the famous @sweden project, the twitter account @TweetYoruba will feature a new Yoruba speaker every fortnight, and their role will be to express themselves fully in Yoruba. The project seeks to fill a void on twitter for Yoruba speakers. Currently, there is none or few twitter accounts where one can read ONLY in Yoruba language. The domineering nature of English has crowded out the voices of local languages. Through this project, we will empower more people to use the L1 on social networks.

We are from Allen, South Dakota a small town of approx. 1200 people located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. Our aim is to establish a community garden project in which we will empower our local tribal members to grow their own fresh produce and eventually establish a local farmers market in which other communities could be involved. We are hoping to establish a local farmers market for the reason being that fresh produce is very hard to obtain locally ,the nearest grocery store with fresh produce such as fruits and vegetables is approx. 18 miles away and prices are high.
Single teenage mothers suffer stigmatisation and discrimination daily in their lives from family through the community. This has led to many of them being infected through continuous sexual abuse, rape and assaults. In some cases femicide has been committed against them. In a nutshell, we want to restore these victims as survivors in communities and empower them through vocational or professional trainings that would build their skills and offer them with sustainable means of livelihood through access to support for micro business incentives. Also, enable them to care for their children.
At the University of Ibadan (UI) located in the south-west part of Nigeria, the environment is changing due to climate change. The perceived changes and the response of the authorities are sometimes not aligned with the expectations of the residents. There are two broad categories of residents: students who live in the hostels and staff who live in residential quarters. This work is intended to create a voice for the community online using a combination of social media tools. The content created is expected to influence the authorities decisions as regards the management of the environment.
