The next objective for our workshop is to ensure local sustainability.
Sustainability requires funding and collaboration with organizations both in South Africa and around the world. Our hope is for our students to continue producing content for their movement, not having to rely on any outside group to do so. The movement for more quality and equitable education throughout South Africa is their's; this workshop aims to empower them with media skills to affect educational policy.
Through generous grants, we have been able to hire a local facilitator and filmmaker from Khayelitsha to continue our work as well as a project manager.
We welcome Eugene Paramoer to the Amazwi Wethu team, who will continue to guide and shape our young filmmakers!
