iVillage Project: 

Rural Content through iPad mini

 

Need and Context:

After a decade long conflictthat ended in 2006, Nepal expects to enter into a new phase of inclusivedemocracy, economic prosperity and social security. Political developments in acouple of years have raised aspirations among the marginalized communitiesliving across the nation. And they are passionately waiting for transformationand their voices and rights to be ensured through the Constituent Assembly.

 

The reality of rural life was difficult to be represented because of conflict and security problems in the past. However, the situation has changed, with the introduction of more local and community based media in these areas specially radio. But still real stories from the rural Nepal is left untold.

 

Rural TV Network Nepal  (RTV-Nepal) serves the very purpose to bring in real stories from within the community, by the community- visually to the audience not only at the rural level but all over the world. RTV-Nepal believes that the latest technology can be rightly used for sharing local stories and issues using visual media content.

 

This initiative of RTV-Nepalis possible because the mobile telephone and Internet users in Nepal is increasing in rural areas rapidly. As per the census report of 2011, 13.18million people in rural areas use cell phones. The report also shows that 180,746households have access to internet –126,654 households in urban and 54,092 in rural areas. This is positive indication about for enthusiast at RTV-Nepal to use internet based transmission of video produced at the rural level in Nepal.Using this method RTV-Nepal with support of some volunteers have started such work to assess possibility.   

iVillage : Rural Content  through iPad

iVillage,is a unique concept started by RTV-Nepal. It is a digital format of rural storytelling. Using this concept RTV-Nepal will train rural community and youth about operation of iPad and iMovie editing software.

 

The youth after receiving training will use iPad to make a story and upload it in the RTV-Nepal web page in a YouTube format. The youth could use iPad for other purposes like taking photographs, which could also be a means for his/her sustainability in the village in the long run.  

 

The first phase of i-Village will make rural reporting on various issues. We also provide support for making short documentary about rural development initiative, agriculture production, adventure, culture, life-styles, food, knowledge, local technology etc.


For example:

·iVillage :Three to five minute village profile (our village, beautiful village).
