Stories for Change

Stories for change creates a win- win situation for youths with basic knowledge of multimedia production and CSOs in need by connecting these two groups. The initiative by the Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy has seen seven stories of CSOs produced.

In Bhutan, there are many meaningful initiatives of Civil Societry Organisations (CSO) for positive social changes. However, due to lack of resources, these activities have not been known to the public. On the other hand, there are motivated youths who are ready to help CSOs with their skills. Until now, the BCMD has held several workshops to offer opportunities for youths to learn how to produce multimedia news, photography and journalism skills.

CSOs can promote their activities with video and photo works of youths. And the youths can have chances to produce their own works and present these to the public. Furthermore, it can benefit the public who look for information about NGOs in Bhutan and inspiration for their own engagement.

In the next phase of Stories for Change, videos on Bhutan Foundation, Tarayana Foundation, and Construction Association for Bhutan will be produced.
