Global Voices Partners with Melton Foundation on New Round of Mentoring

Global Voices and the Melton Foundation have launched a new round of collaboration that will see a team of authors from Global Voices mentor a group of Fellows of the Melton Foundation in blogging and social media research.

Over the next four months, six Melton fellows from Chile, India and China will be coached over the internet in research and writing for Global Voices. The goal is to highlight solutions to inequality and discrimination in their regions, and gain experience writing for a global audience.

This is the second time Global Voices will be mentoring Melton fellows, after a successful first run in 2013.

The Melton Foundation promotes “global citizenship as a way for individuals and organizations to work together across boundaries of place and identity to address global challenges”.

On their website, they explain that sharing awareness of societal problems in a forum like Global Voices, “is an integral part of being a global citizen.”
