The project will support video and audio production by indigenous peoples in remote northeastern Cambodia. This is so they can document their issues across language barrier (by using dubbing and sub-titling) and upload the video on blogs and websites to reach both national and international audiences. This possible now because a small number of indigenous people have learnt video and audio production, a community advisory group formed, and an indigenous peoples’ media support NGO is being created.
The Empowering Cloghers Project will strengthen the online presence and influence of female university students from rural Cambodia by enabling them to become Cambodian bloghers (female bloggers) – known as “cloghers” – and to become active online. This 6 month Project will train participants in setting up and designing successful blogs, writing compelling posts and promoting blogs through social media. The Project will also run a writing competition for the most effective post and set-up a “Clogher Corner” to enable networking and skills-sharing with the existing clogher community.
