Brussels, September 16, 2019 (Cultural Survival) The Indigenous rights organization Cultural Survival launched a call for proposals for its 2020 Indigenous community media youth fellowship.
The fellowship project intends to support young communicators in building their capacity as radio broadcasters and journalists through specific trainings, community radio visits and exchanges, radio production, conference attendance, and other educational opportunities.
Applicants must reside in one of the following countries: Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Nepal and northern India.
Cultural Survival believes that it is crucial to listen and respond to the needs of the communities in order to provide support that is sustainable, supportive, and most importantly, pertinent to the needs of the community. Indigenous youth are the future and developing youth leadership is an integral part of ensuring the well-being of the communities.
