What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Young women from disadvantaged and challenged communities do not have the access, resources, or training to engage in international new media dialogue, or to become citizen journalists to tell stories from their own perspectives.
How will this project solve this problem?
GlobalGirl Media focuses on innovative ideas for improving access to media and information for at-risk, underprivileged or otherwise resource-poor young women, giving them new tools to increase media literacy, which in turn helps them to engage in critical global dialogue about issues such as reproductive rights and human rights, violence against women, health, environment, peace and social justice.
Potential Long Term Impact
Our long-term goal is to create sustainable models for building an international broadcast/web network of girls reporting on critical issues related to their lives. As we become more global and our audience expands, we hope to reach millions.
