Proposals from April 8, 2014
ENVISION creates solutions to the challenges disabled youths in Cameroon face. To effectively empower disabled youths, working closely with beneficiaries is important. Thus to raise awareness on their challenges, we are working with disabled youths to launch a radio program hosted on the national radio station, CRTV. Furthermore, to change perspectives on how to bring out the best in “disabled” youths and create an environment where they are accepted and assisted to grow, we plan on launching a Video log(Vlog) on our online social media platforms. This will be managed and run by the youth
The aim is to launch an online crowd-based map using existing and user-generated data from human rights defenders to reduce violence against women in Mexico through storytelling and the sharing of data. We will implement an online training course using Google Hangouts with a core group of human rights defenders currently working in Mexico. Courses will focus on the use of narrative strategy to frame stories, current mapping and SMS technology. The website will be launched as a training tool and a way to humanize the statistics related to violence targeted at women and children in Mexico.
Portal with videos of life stories, legends and traditions from Mayan speakers of Campeche. This project proposes to register a part of the Mayan oral culture. This will be through 20 interviews of Maya-speakers who, through them, will tell a traditional Mayan history. Topics are open, however, priority will be given to those that deal with the environment. Subsequently, these recordings will be edited and translated into Spanish and English and will be hosted on a website to be promoted through our social networks and those of our partners.
Feminist Approach to Technology (FAT) is a non-profit organisation that envisages a holistic leadership model for girls, by helping them own technology from a rights-based feminist perspective. The project proposed here aims at creating three digital stories by girls from an urban poor area in New Delhi. They will capture and document the opinions and perspective of three stakeholders, viz., community-elders, boys and the girls themselves, on a film they have already made on issue of lack of toilets (called Apna Haq) and trace the impact the film has had on each stakeholder for safer living.
