Dear Friends, Donors, and Supporters:
Since the March 29 launch, the Media Lab has started to shape up as the intentional learning space that we'd originally envisioned. Week after week, we've been able to hold a number of innovative media trainings and community building events for over 150 youth. Our experience of the past 3 months has confirmed our intuitions - that Bhutanese youth have immense creative potentials and civic awareness that can be harnessed for the good of Bhutan's democracy.
A brief overview of what we've been able to accomplish:
Looking ahead, we plan to further develop the Media Lab to enable youth to access the facilities on a consistent basis and take ownership of what goes on. Currently, we are in the process of hiring a Media Lab coordinator - someone who we will train and employ to keep the Lab open 6 days a week (as opposed to being open only on the weekends, as it currently is). The coordinator will help us develop the curriculum for our Media Guild program, a structured program geared towards training empowered, media literate citizens.
Your continued support will make it possible for us to hire the coordinator and reach even more youth!
Thank you and Tashi Delek :-)
