“I am Africa. This is my story…” In 2007 UNESCO Power of Peace Network funded Ning portal with a digital storytelling workshops. I built all aspects of this program include delivering the workshops in Lesotho and Zambia. Some workshops in vocations such a Nigeria and Camaroon were delivered by webinar. Chrysalis Campaign, Inc. funds the hosting of this community for educational purposes.
We are currently seeking grants to complete phase two of this site for Somaliland and Somali journalists. The new system will be a collaborative “Country Learning System” based on the Global Learning Framework. It will be expanded to offer a comprehensive literacy programs that will also be available for small business and global schools. The intent is to link the top Somaliland and Somali Universities with US and global schools with journalism and business programs.
