ORG has continued to build on the foundation of citizen empowerment established through our Freedom Schools. As the lingering impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic has slowed a return to in person trainings and sessions, ORG has applied a focus to the development of more online resources and tools to increase access to citizen participation in governance.
ORG has converted Freedom Schools content has been converted to digital training models that Bahamians can access online through ORG's Citizen Solution Center. The modules will allow persons that participate in Freedom School sessions to have a source which will allow them to return to the material as they need. Additionally, the Modules will allow those whose schedules may not permit attendance at a session to use the materials at their convenience.
To support broader public awareness of the Freedom Schools, ORG also developed an engagement video of the program. This video is being widely promoted on ORG’s social media channels and through local corporate partnerships the Video is now being seen digitally in over 60 businesses across the islands of the archipelago.
Through GlobalGiving’s Little by Little online fundraising campaign to, ORG supporters donated enough to support 3 in person Freedom Schools and one virtual session! Over the next months, ORG will be scheduling and holding these sessions to provide citizens with the tools, training and opportunities to raise their voices about the issues that matter most in their communities. As we move forward, ORG will be seeking funding to travel to bring our programs to communities on some of the more remote islands of our archipelago. We will also be developing more resources and programs to encourage citizen participation. With help from our supporters ORG hopes to make it easy for everyone in The Bahamas to “Get Informed and Get Involved!”.
