Global Voices Meetup in Kampala, Uganda

Rising Voices This post is from Rising Voices, a Global Voices project that helps spread citizen media to places that don't normally have access to it. · All Posts

gv-meetup-logo-gvmeetup-400Our third Global Voices Meetup will take place in Kampala, Uganda on November 23, 2013 at the Hive Colab.

This Meetup is especially targeted at the hundreds of Rising Voices microgrant applicants from across Uganda. Over the past three years, we received the most number of applications from East Africa, including from all corners of Uganda. We hope that this Meetup will help facilitate connections.

The Meetup will bring together many of these community members to share their experiences and help facilitate connections between others that share similar interests or missions. Hosted by two of our community members Maureen Agena (@maureenagena) and Rosebell (@RosebellK), as well as other GV volunteers, the gathering will focus on:

  • Explaining the work of Global Voices, Rising Voices, Advox, and Lingua, and how the Ugandan community can get involved,
  • Exploring new ways that local community can support each other by sharing skills and resources and discussing projects and ideas,
  • Discussing how social media can be used in their work, including personal experience from attendees.

Since the focus of this meetup is primarily for past microgrant applicants, the invitation was initally sent to these groups, and all of the slots are filled. 

Follow the event through Twitter via #GVMeetup and for more information, please contact: rising [at] globalvoicesonline.org
