Children and teenagers in my community will write songs that affect their lives, such as child abuse, abandonment, contamination, migration, racism, and harassment, and will be recorded and sung by the same youth in order to be uploaded to a viral blog so that everyone can listen to it. We hope to achieve reflection by their families, the community, and the world. We will achieve this thanks to those willingness for this project, where the youth will have the wonderful experience of creating, singing, and sharing.
The project I'm proposing is simple. I would like to train up to 30 youth citizen journalists at a youth friendly NGO (asked not to be identified). I would like to train them 3 important things (1) blogging, Wikipedia, social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter (2) how to utilize them in a way that is relevant to their lives (3) how they can train their peers how to use them as well.
