The online engagement platform for discussion, connection and collaboration.
Organization: Media for Development(Association / NGO)
Media for Development is a not-for-profit organisation that uses different media to reach, engage, and empower isolated communities in the United Kingdom and internationally. We have worked with a wide cross-section of partner agencies and clients in more than 30 different countries around the world.
Do public services need to be 'delivered'?
Or can social media empower the public to create their own services?
I run YoungDads.TV (a project to support young fathers in the UK) on behalf of Media for Development.
We use Facebook & Google Docs to help groups of young dads to form their own groups. We fund their travel costs (the biggest barrier to their engagement with activities) and help them to establish a presence online (including films that they make themselves).
