- This page: Using video and the internet to give world's poorest a voice
I formulated the concept of Hillside Digital (HD) with the aim of harnessing the power of the Internet and new media as a sustainable platform for the world's poorest communities to tell their own stories. HD trains candidates, no matter their education, how to use digital film to highlight issues affecting their community which is then shown to their community on portable projectors. The films are then put on the internet for the world to watch. HD is born in South Africa but has a global vision to become the voice of the world's poorest people.
