The training introduced a means of posting content in the internet with inexpensive mobile phones that have no internet connectivity. The workshop was organised by the Mídia Étnica Institute, in a partnership with the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Center for Civic Media.&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to the Vojo website: Vojo is designed for people to post stories from inexpensive mobile phones via voice calls, SMS (text messaging) , and MMS (multimedia messaging service). It also makes it possible to set up and customise a group where people can post content to the internet from their phones. The aim of introducing this technology in the Ilha de Maré community was to empower young "quilombolas" and help them identify and denounce the violence they witness in their communities. Vojo enables them to reach bloggers and media outlets outside Ilha de Maré.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The training included a video with previous similar activities, and trainers led discussion on the future of the Vojo Brazil project. This pilot project is directed to reach communities in remote rural areas, indigenous groups, landless workers, and other disenfranchised groups alienated from the information society.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>According to Vojo creators and trainers, "Vojo enables everyone to create and update a blog even whether she/he does not have computer or internet access. The tool allows the user to post audio stories from mobile phones and even public telephones. It is also possible to post photos and video from cell phones. The idea is to help the youth to become tech-savvy and connect their communities to a social network that can increase the awareness to their social, cultural and political demands in the Brazilian media ecosystem."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A<a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.facebook.com/vojobrasil" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> Facebook page</a> was developed on the workshop, showing an example of a message from the community to the Brazilian government. &nbsp;According to one of the project coordinators: "In addition to Vojo, they [the youth] had talks on sexually transmitted diseases, black identity, media democratization and basic journalism. They must be able to spread the technology to other communities in Salvador and Brazil."</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Youth, Rights</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>"<a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.vojo.co/en/content/about" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Vojo </a>is a hosted version of the VozMob Drupal Distribution, which has been developed by the VozMob (Mobile Voices / Voces Moviles) project through an ongoing collaborative design process with day laborers, household workers, students, and a diverse team from the Institute of Popular Education of Southern California (IDEPSCA).

The PSA begins with children discovering giant footprints in the dirt and going on a journey on foot with fellow villagers to investigate. At the end of the path, they meet the man with the large feet who suffers with the disease. "Messaging highlights the irreversible nature of advanced filaria and, at the same time, the simplicity of its prevention - with what is described as an uplifting tone. The patient himself delivers the key message: 'this disease can happen to anyone.'" According to organisers, care has been taken to sensitively handle the subject and to create empathy with the patient. Portraying a pitiful picture of the patient is avoided; instead he is shown as a champion for treatment and action who encourages people to participate in the mass drug administration and consume the pills for a Hathipaon Mukt Bharat (Filaria Free India). Bauddhayan Mukherji, Founder and Director of Little Lamb Films, said: "Given the diversity of our target audience, we wanted to make sure there were a variety of cues throughout the videos that were distinctly Indian, but not necessarily representative of any one state or region." The PSA also emphasises that the pills are free and safe, and, if everyone consumes their dose of the pills daily, it will help in achieving the larger goal: to eliminate filaria from India.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Disseminated through regional television channels Doordashan TV and All India Radio, the 3 television videos that were produced in Hindi were dubbed in 9 different regional languages to ensure widespread comprehension; print-based advertisements were disseminated in vernacular, state-specific media. To increase acceptance of the videos across India, the team selected a neutral language, Sanskrit, for the musical score, with lyrics that translate as: "There are signs along the way that lead us to the ultimate truth," meant to pair with the visual treatment in the films.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Reliance Group lent its corporate support to the campaign by promoting it through the company's mobile, mass media, and web-based channels. Their involvement is set to take centre stage when the second phase of the campaign begins in February 2015, with mass drug administration rounds taking place in states not covered during the first phase, including Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Health</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Lymphatic filariasis can cause disability and disfigurement among those infected. Though prevention is very easy, the MOHFW has faced significant difficulties in combating the disease. Many people are complacent when it comes to prevention - in part because of apathy toward the disease and the length of time it takes to manifest itself (8 to 10 years). As a result, many people fail to consume their medicine even with the government's door-to-door efforts to deliver free, preventive doses and educational messaging in endemic regions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin) is a non-profit organisation of scientists, researchers, and advocates dedicated to reducing needless human suffering from vaccine-preventable and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Since its founding in 1993 in honour of Dr. Albert B. Sabin, the developer of the oral polio vaccine, Sabin has developed new vaccines, advocated for increased use of existing vaccines, and promoted expanded access to affordable medical treatments in collaboration with governments, academic institutions, scientists, medical professionals, and other non-profit organisations. The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases is an advocacy initiative of Sabin that works in partnership with international agencies, governments, academic institutions, corporations, non-governmental development organisations, and the general public to raise the awareness, political will, and funding necessary to control and eliminate the 7 most common NTDs by 2020.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-partner-text"> <div class="field-label">Partner Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>MOHFW partnered with the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases (Global Network), an initiative of the Sabin Vaccine Institute.
