This project brings to the online global community stories of victims of human rights violations in 6 Central African Countries. The project functions on the basis that those who have suffered abuse often suffer further indignity by remaining unheard. In making the individual story, told by the individual in their own words and their own way, visible, freely available, we can offer some support to those who need it most. It offers access to information to about 70 % of women & youth in Africa.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Over 18 million people each year, especially women and youth in communities in the Central African countries, suffer in silence from various forms of human rights abuses that people elsewhere take for granted. Although they are supposed to be at the center of social change as seen from the Arab Spring, in countries like Cameroon, Chad, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Central Africa Republic, and Congo, their voice is seldom heard.This project will provide voice space to these people who make up 70 %.
How will this project solve this problem?
DignityTV streams real live stories from the victims and told by the victims. Truth is, those who have suffered abuse often suffer further indignity by remaining unheard. In making the individual story, told by the individual in their own words and their own way, visible, accessible, the project offers some support to those who need it most. Documentary films and real life accounts brings the world's attention to their plight given that 27.1 % every 100 people surf for information online.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will reach out to real decision makers, not idle surfers, in over 140 countries across the world who have never had access to information on how other human beings live in substandard conditions. It will empower over 3 million victims in enclave areas in Central African countries to tell own stories from their own cultural perspective and heritage. Our online TV project hopes to create an international dialogue on the respect of international conventions, protocols, and other issues.
