Our main goal is to contribute to peace building at school communities by creating a digital network where teachers, parents and students can share experiences and information about how to overcome violence situations. In order to achieve our goal, and since there is a lack of reflection about the advantages and disadvantages of the ICT implementation at Bolivian schools, we want to develop and strengthen skills about internet, cyberbullying and digital tools in teachers and parents. Finally, we will motivate a massive participation and practical use of the acquired skills creating a contest.
As a freelance journalist, I want to train citizen journalists living in communities that were affected by the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. I have seen that people who survived it are not writing what they experienced. I fear that as time goes on, genocide survivors will get old and die without leaving genocide memories to the next generation. It is dangerous to forget what happened because there is a risk that it can happen again. I want to train young people to interview genocide survivors on what they went through so that they can publish those stories in blogs, YouTube and other social medias

Despite Ugandan government efforts, over 16 women still die every day due to preventable and treatable pregnant-related complications. Child mortality rate is unacceptably high. The death of mothers and children remain invisible. Building on its advocacy efforts to improve child and maternal health in Uganda, Angels Compassion (a not-for-profit registered NGO: Reg. no: 9392) now proposes to organise 5-day hands-on workshops to train 20 college/University girls in using photography, stories, emails and blogs to report child and maternal health challenges in Uganda.
The objective of the project is to connect twenty PWDs in Wakiso district to the world through the use of social media (face book,twitter,blog and Youtube. Wakiso district is one of the 121 districts in Uganda, bordering Kampala, the Capital City. However in spite of being near the city, PWDs in the districts are not much different from their counterparts in upcountry districts in regard to low self esteem, limited participation in development activities, poverty, low levels of education, and lack of information for social-economic development.
The purpose of this citizen media project is to make visible Roma women’s voices in the online environment through digital story telling. After being provided training on digital photography, Roma women from Tg Frumos will be given the tools and the support to self-document their lives behind the households’ fences. Together with young people, Roma women will be protagonists and narrators of the digital stories the project will generate and widely distribute. A blog reflecting the dynamics of the process of implementing it will be another media endeavor to widely spread Roma citizens’ voices.

By accessing direct television news and give feedback by SMS , internet based communication (Twitter and Facebook) to share with the rest of the country and the world what is happening to the community in daily life at the moment it is happening will improve on overall skills. This will be done by gathering the community before a screen and two computer all connected with TV channel and internet.
