In its National Development Plan, South Africa has pledged to provide all its people, rich and poor, with access to information communication technologies.
Join a team of five other reporters as we report on South Africa, 20 years after the abolishment of Apartheid. The story of the rural folk is seldom told and you will tell it from that angle focusing on the rural youth of Limpopo. Issues to be looked at will include: general election and voting in 2014, education, unemployment, crime and violence, women empowerment, health, basic service delivery and democracy. The project runs from mid-May to mid-July 2014, and stories will be published on our site and those of our partners. Additional content will be in the form of pictures, interviews, online news broadcasts and documentaries. Social networking sites for the projects such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter will be created and utilized.
